Chapter Profiles

AAUP chapters empower faculty to have a collective voice on their campuses. Although each college and university has a unique set of challenges, affiliation with the AAUP provides chapters with a common language and resources for addressing those challenges. Whether they are advocacy chapters or collective bargaining chapters, AAUP chapters have a lot to learn from each other about organizing effectively for change on campus. We use AAUP chapter profiles to share the stories of new and established chapters and ask them about their challenges and accomplishments.

Chapter profiles are a regular feature in most issues of Academe magazine. You can browse the archive below of past chapter profiles. If your chapter has a story to share, write to [email protected] to be considered for a chapter profile in Academe. We will also consider profiles of state AAUP conferences, like the one highlighted below.
