Welcome to the AAUP UM-Flint Chapter,

AAUP Mission

(For full description see: AAUP Site)

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. Founded in 1915, the AAUP has helped to shape American higher education by developing the standards and procedures that maintain quality in education and academic freedom in this country’s colleges and universities.

About the Newsletters: Newsletters are chapter publications that are overseen by the chapter’s officers with contributions from chapter members (and non-chapter members) as well as topics from other chapters and national AAUP publications. Because the chapter considers membership status the right of members to disclose or not, we do not identify specific authorship in newsletters, website content, etc. This is especially to protect untenured contributors.

Information provided by and viewpoints of contributors is accurate and up-to-date to the best of their knowledge and based on the information available. AAUP contributors do take the perspective that advocates for strong defense of academic freedoms and robust shared and faculty governance. These principles are also reflected in national AAUP publications and training opportunities, which can be found at www.aaup.org.

If you wish to comment on or ask questions about newsletter content (or have ideas for items to cover) please direct comments to the chapter officers: Jamile Lawand, Sarah Lippert, Murali Mani, and Jerry Sanders via flintaaup@umflint.edu.
