One Faculty, One Resistance Website

By Mariah Quinn

Democracy thrives on dissent, critical inquiry, freedom of speech, and freedom in research. Today, more than ever, these principles are under attack. In October, the AAUP launched a new website as part of the One Faculty, One Resistance campaign, which brings together faculty, academic profes­sionals, and supporters from across the country to fight for higher education. The site serves as a hub for the AAUP’s work on fighting targeted harassment of faculty members, protecting academic freedom, and uniting the faculty. It gathers in one place a variety of resources—including AAUPreports, statements, articles, and FAQs—on the challenges now affecting faculty and offers ways for potential as well as current members to connect with digital organizing efforts.

Comments

Can AAUP give financial support to targeted members? What hashtags should we use when organizing events (the hashtag that mentions targeting faculty could be read as anti-faculty and pro-targeting so I won't be using that one-- maybe #academicfreedom #onefaculty #AAUP what?

Thank you for your work!

Sorry for our delay in responding to the above questions. The hashtags you suggest are all excellent ones to use in your social-media posts. You may also choose to tag us by using @AAUP in Twitter posts so that we will see your mention.

As for your question about financial support for faculty under attack, the AAUP Foundation may be able to provide some grant funding in particular instances, consistent with its purposes as a charitable organization, through its Academic Freedom Fund and Legal Defense Fund. You can learn more about applying for grants and see the grant guidelines for each grant fund on the AAUP Foundation website.
