Developments Relating to Association Censure and Sanction

The following are brief accounts by the Association’s staff of significant developments over the past year involving administrations censured by the AAUP (for not observing principles of academic freedom and tenure) and institutions sanctioned by the AAUP (for infringement of governance standards). The accounts are in chronological order, according to the date of imposition of the censure or sanction.

Developments Relating to Association Censure and Sanction

The Association’s staff has prepared the following brief accounts of favorable developments during the past year at institutions whose administrations have incurred AAUP censure (for departures from principles of academic freedom and tenure) or at institutions that are under sanction (for infringement of governance standards). For information about the current status of other censures or sanctions (listed respectively on pages 46 and 54), please contact the Association’s Department of Academic Freedom, Tenure, and Governance.



Censure and Sanction Actions

Today, delegates to the 102nd Annual Meeting of the AAUP voted to place the College of Saint Rose and the University of Missouri (Columbia) on the AAUP’s list of administrations censured for violating standards of academic freedom and tenure. The annual meeting also voted to remove from the censure list two institutions: Metropolitan Community College in Missouri and Grove City College in Pennsylvania. Grove City College had been on the censure list since 1963, longer than any other institution.
