University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
Academic Freedom for a Free Society
of University

Welcome to the AAUP’s Local Chapter. The AAUP—in both its national and local manifestations—has played a vital role in supporting the bedrock principles of academic freedom, tenure, and shared governance within higher education. These principles help make higher education in the United States a national treasure and one of the envies of the world, while ensuring contributions to the public good. We also serve as an active resource for faculty with concerns about tenure process, academic freedom, and other faculty matters. For decades, our local chapter has defended faculty when these fundamental values have been at risk.

Though we are self-supporting through local dues, this is a perfect time to join as local membership dues have been temporarily waived. If you would like more information or to consult with us, please feel free to contact our chapter president or vice president.
