The successful implementation of AAUP policies is largely dependent upon faculty working toward and insisting upon sound policies at their own institutions. This webinar reviews AAUP principles that should be included in faculty handbooks. It considers ways in which institutional regulations may fall short and need to be revised, as well as statistical information about the prevalence of AAUP principles in faculty handbooks and collective-bargaining agreements.

Over the course of the last century, the AAUP has advocated for the expansion of the protections of tenure and of the right to participate in governance to larger segments of the academic profession. Each expansion arguably served to reinforce the other and served to solidify academic freedom. This talk will give a brief overview of the historical developments that led to the AAUP's conception of tenure in 1940 and the impact of ever rising levels of contingent hiring on academic freedom today.  It will close with a discussion of the relevance of earlier conceptions of tenure to addressing the contemporary crisis of contingency in the profession.
