Upcoming AAUP events


Dear Colleague:

Although you are not a member of the AAUP, I thought you might be interested in these upcoming events. 
Nonmembers are welcome to participate (of course, we also encourage you to join)!
Join colleagues from around the country for panel presentations, roundtable discussions, plenary speakers, and social events. This year, as we move into our second century, the conference will focus on racial, social, and labor justice in higher education.

We’re pleased to have a terrific lineup of speakers, including Shaun Harper, founder and executive director of the University of Pennsylvania Center for the Study of Race and Equity in Education, and Will Jones, professor of history at University of Wisconsin-Madison and author of The March on Washington: Jobs, Freedom and the Forgotten History of Civil Rights.

Register now for early bird rates:

We hope you’ll join us for four days of workshops and special programs to build faculty advocacy skills. We bring in organizers, data analysts, seasoned campaigners, and issue experts to build your skills as an advocate for AAUP principles, collective bargaining, and higher education. Develop your skills, network with colleagues from around the country, and have fun in a casual environment.
Mark your calendar now; registration will open next month.

We are now accepting proposals for presentations at the conference on topics relating to academic governance. Possible areas of focus include:
  • Faculty participation in budgeting, financial exigency, or strategic planning
  • Governance at HBCUs
  • Principles, structures, and best practices of shared governance   
  • Governance and faculty hiring, promotion, and tenure
  • Faculty governance, pedagogy, and curriculum   
  • Governance and collective bargaining
  • The relationship of faculty governance to administrations and legislatures 
  • Motivating faculty from underrepresented groups to participate in shared governance
  • The roles of tenured, tenure-track, and contingent faculty in shared governance
  • Departmental governance issues
In addition to presentations, the conference will include training workshops for current and future governance leaders.

I hope you’ll be able to join us for one or more of these great events! To learn more about the AAUP and membership, visit

Best wishes,
Gwendolyn Bradley
External Relations Director
