Centennial Declaration

Show your support for restoring colleges and universities as a public good by signing the AAUP Centennial Declaration. We'll add your name to the growing ranks of citizens who support free and open higher education, learning opportunities that don't leave students with crippling debt, and new levels of engagement between campus and community.

Nearly one hundred years ago, the AAUP issued the 1915 Declaration of Principles on Academic Freedom and Academic Tenure. AAUP principles helped build the largest and most successful system of higher education in the world.

A century later, US institutions of higher learning need a new commitment from faculty, students, and community allies to reclaim the possibilities that have been threatened by corporatization.

Let's stand together to show our unwavering support for higher education and expanded learning opportunities for all students.

Join the movement!
