The mission of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) is to advance academic freedom and shared governance; to define fundamental professional values and standards for higher education; to promote the economic security of faculty, academic professionals, graduate students, post‐doctoral fellows, and all those engaged in teaching and research in higher education; to help the higher education community organize to make our goals a reality; and to ensure higher education’s contribution to the common good.

Our Advocacy Chapter includes the Executive Committee (president, vice president, secretary/treasurer, and member at large); four standing committees (Membership, Communications, Women’s Caucus, Teaching-Track Caucus), and members at large.
