Across the country, faculty members, academic professionals, and graduate students—teachers and scholars from all disciplines—turn to the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) for many reasons: for authoritative interpretations of principles of academic freedom, for guidance on best practices on college campuses, for hands-on training on academic workplace issues, for data on faculty at their own and other institutions, for help with advocacy in their state legislatures or in Congress, for informative conferences, and for the provocative articles in Academe.
When you join the AAUP, you become a part of higher education’s most influential voice for faculty. You defend academic freedom. You affirm the importance of faculty governance. You proclaim your profession’s values and standards, and you stand for the quality of American higher education.

Join today and work with thousands of colleagues across the country to support what matters most in our profession.
