Henry Reichman Becomes AAUP Foundation Chair

By Edward J. Graham

The AAUP Foundation welcomes Henry Reichman as the new chair of the Foundation’s board of directors. Reichman, a professor of history at California State University, East Bay, currently serves as first vice president of the AAUP and as chair of Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure.

Reichman has been involved in the AAUP’s national leadership since 2011, when he was first elected to the AAUP’s national Council from District I. He has served the Association in numerous capacities, including as one of four elected at-large delegates to the Council’s executive committee and as the AAUP’s appointed delegate to the national Campaign for the Future of Higher Education. He is now serving in his second term as the AAUP’s first vice president.

“The AAUP Foundation is still in its infancy,” Reichman said, “but it is poised to grow into a significant source of financial support for the principles that the AAUP has developed and defended for the past century. I am excited and honored by the opportunity to help fulfill the Foundation’s enormous promise.”

The AAUP Foundation was created as part of the AAUP’s organizational restructuring on January 1, 2013. It is organized to fund, through its grant-making process, the charitable and educational purposes of the AAUP, including supporting principles of academic freedom and the quality of higher education in a free and democratic society.
