New AAUP Advocacy Chapters

By Edward J. Graham

The AAUP is pleased to announce the formation of sixteen new advocacy chapters during the fall semester. The new chapters, in chronological order of formation, are located at Lackawanna College (Pennsylvania), Seton Hall University (New Jersey), Nassau Community College (New York), Mills College (California), Aurora University (Illinois), Hartwick College (New York), Georgetown College (Kentucky), York College of Pennsylvania, Ferrum College (Virginia), the Community College of Denver, Southern University at Shreveport (Louisiana), University of Southern Maine, Virginia Tech, Gonzaga University (Washington), Valley Forge Military Academy and College (Pennsylvania), and Marywood University (Pennsylvania).

“The AAUP is the only national organization for university faculty cutting across disciplinary boundaries to advance values for the profession,” said Roseanne Mirabella, president of the new Seton Hall chapter and chair of the university’s department of political science and public affairs.

Active AAUP chapters serve the profession at more than 450 accredited colleges and universities. While all AAUP chapters promote academic freedom, shared governance, and other core AAUP principles, additional chapter activities are determined by campus activities and needs.
