Policy Documents & Reports. Ninth Edition.
Kreiser, B. Robert, Ed.
This volume presents policy statements as they have been formulated by standing and special committees of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) from 1940 to the present. Also included are a number of reports on special topics that have been approved by the AAUP for publication. The AAUP has been engaged in developing standards for sound academic practice and in working for the acceptance of these standards for more than 85 years. The policy documents offer guidance to all components of the academic community for the development of institutional policy or the resolution of concrete issues. Some documents are designed to be adapted as institutional policy. Third parties also use some of these statements to support their own policies. The policy statements and reports are grouped into these categories: (1) "Academic Freedom, Tenure, and Due Process"; (2) "Professional Ethics"; (3) "Research and Teaching"; (4) "Distance Education and Intellectual Property"; (5) "Discrimination"; (6) "College and University Government"; (7) "Collective Bargaining"; (8) "Student Rights and Freedoms"; (9) "College and University Accreditation"; (10) "Collateral Benefits"; and (11) "Constitution." Appendixes contain the AAUP's 1915 "Declaration of Principles" and three other documents related to procedures in academic freedom cases, standards for investigation, and selected judicial decisions and scholarly writings related to AAUP policy.
