The AAUP's mission is to advance academic freedom and shared governance, to define fundamental professional values and standards for higher education, and to ensure higher education's contribution to the common good.
 
For decades our local chapter has defended faculty when their academic freedom was violated. Our efforts have helped establish the campus’ values and its shared governance practices.
