Collective Bargaining Chapters Give Generously

By Elona M. Jouben

The AAUP Foundation is pleased to announce generous gifts of $5,000 each from the Wright State University and Cuyahoga Community College AAUP chapters. 

When the Wright State chapter decided in December to make a gift, chapter president Martin Kich appealed to other collective bargaining chapters, explaining the Foundation’s urgent need for support and asking them to consider making a contribution. The Cuyahoga Community College chapter responded shortly thereafter with its own gift. 

The Foundation receives no member dues and relies on the generosity of AAUP members, chapters, conferences, and friends for funding in order to further its mission of supporting principles of academic freedom and the quality of higher education in a free and democratic society. With the generous help of chapters such as Wright State University and Cuyahoga Community College, the Foundation can more effectively respond to the challenges confronting higher education. 

The AAUP Foundation thanks the Wright State University AAUP and Cuyahoga Community College AAUP chapters for their contributions to our collective efforts.
