Chapter Profile: University of Akron

The AAUP chapter at the University of Akron in Ohio was established in 1932 and chartered as a collective bargaining chapter in 2003. It represents more than 750 full-time tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty members. In January, the chapter ratified its second contract, which includes raises in the first two years, improvements in benefits and governance provisions, and a comprehensive article on non-tenure-track faculty.
