The Redbook

The AAUP's Policy Documents and Reports (widely known as the "Redbook" because of the color of its cover) presents in convenient format a wide range of policies. The current edition, the eleventh, includes basic statements on academic freedom, tenure, and due process; academic governance; professional ethics; research and teaching; online and distance education; intellectual property; discrimination; collective bargaining; accreditation; and students' rights and freedoms. Among the eighteen new reports included in this edition are statements on academic freedom and outside speakers; campus sexual assault; the inclusion of faculty on contingent appointments in academic governance; and salary-setting practices that unfairly disadvantage women faculty.

An introductory essay discusses how to incorporate AAUP principles into faculty handbooks. See the table of contents.
