Take Action

The AAUP is a network of faculty and academic professionals, organized into campus-based chapters and state conferences and backed up by national and field staff. The AAUP's strength and promise is in our members.

On campus, AAUP chapters advocate for faculty rights and interests at an institutional level. Some serve as collective bargaining agents. See a directory of AAUP chapter Web sites.

A state conference is formed when several chapters in a state decide to work together to advance AAUP policies and goals. Through a state conference, existing chapters are able to have more influence statewide and new chapters find the support and guidance they need closer to home. Contact your state conference.

You can become more involved by becoming a member of the AAUPmaking a financial contribution, starting a chapter on your campuslobbying your state or federal legislators, or attending an AAUP meeting or conference.
