Fairfield University AAUP Chapter

In 1990, after a tumultuous year in which they organized around issues of governance, compensation, and the faculty’s appropriate role in salary negotiations, faculty members at Fairfield University in Connecticut voted to form a Faculty Welfare Committee that would affiliate with the AAUP and serve as an ad hoc committee of the general faculty. In the two decades since, the chapter has remained strong, active, and unified. Of 231 eligible faculty members at the small Jesuit institution, 70 percent are members of the Association.
