Elected Leaders

The leaders of the Association are drawn from colleges and universities throughout the country.

Campus-based chapters elect leaders locally.

In many states, chapters form state conferences to work on statewide issues. The Assembly of State Conferences is the umbrella organization for AAUP state conferences.

At the national level, officers are elected biannually, and are assisted in governing the Association by an elected national Council that meets twice a year and by an Executive Committee that meets four times a year.
