Thank you for your interest in joining our chapter!

Although joining the national AAUP organization is expensive, none of that money comes to our chapter except through grants we apply for from the state conference.  In order to support our local activities, we decided in 2019 to levy chapter dues.  According to our bylaws, members must join the national organization (which you can do here), must pay required conference dues (but we don't have any in our conference), and chapter dues. The secretary/treasurer collects dues annually in September.

Dues are based on a modified version of AAUP’s membership bands based on annual salary.

1. Pay your national dues (required to be part of the chapter).

You must join AAUP national before you pay chapter dues.  You may join here

2. Pay your chapter dues

AAUP Mission

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.

Stand Against the Ban

The AAUP strongly opposes Donald Trump's unconstitutional and discriminatory ban on entry into the United States for people from some Muslim-majority countries.

Large numbers of our students and faculty members are affected by administration’s ill-considered executive order, which violates so many American traditions and beliefs. We fear that the abuse of power we are witnessing will wreak havoc on our institutions of higher education.

We call on faculty, students, and all citizens to remain engaged in the struggle for justice on every campus and in every community. We call on all reasonable politicians to oppose against this administration’s discriminatory order. Add your name in solidarity.
