Advocacy Chapter Organizing

Gathered here are the collected resources and content developed by experienced AAUP staff and members on effective organizing at AAUP advocacy chapters. These resources will guide you through the process of starting and executing an organizing campaign at your institution, from introducing what organizing means in a non-union context to the nuts and bolts of building a team and talking to your colleagues.

While these resources can be explored in any order, we recommend if you are just starting out to begin with the Introduction to Organizing module which provides a firm foundation for the rest of the materials. Your member log-in is required to open all resource pages. 

If you are interested in learning more from an AAUP organizer and working with other advocacy chapter leadeers around the country, please email [email protected] for more info on the Advocacy Chapter Organizing school.
