At the 2022 AAUP Biennial Meeting in Washington, DC, the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) launched an affiliation with the American Federation of Teachers (AFT). This partnership enables access to the greater resources and reach of AFT while preserving the independence, professional expertise and experience of AAUP, with its 107 years of organizing in higher education.
Our AAUP chapter and (soon!) union will retain full autonomy. We will simply have more support, including help for faculty paying off student loans, legal assistance, and liability insurance for our chapter. See this FAQ for more details and let us know if you’d like to learn more.
