Government Relations

The AAUP's government relations program tracks legislation that is relevant to our mission at both the federal and state levels. On the state level, we focus on training AAUP members to build effective state-level lobbying programs. We also communicate legislative information to members and encourage them to become active in the issues affecting higher education in general and faculty in particular. On the federal level, we often work with other groups in coalitions or sign on to multi-organizational letters on issues of key importance to higher education.
