College and University Academic and Professional Appointments.
American Association of Univ. Professors, Washington, DC.
This report presents the position of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) on academic and professional appointments at colleges and universities and the protection of professional appointees who are not faculty members. Faculty members and other professional appointees share similar and overlapping commitments and thus participate in a community of interest relative to such issues as academic freedom, academic governance, affirmative action, academic due process, and collective bargaining. The AAUP calls for faculty involvement in making decisions that may lead to the termination of faculty appointments. The AAUP urges colleges and universities to develop and maintain reasonable and fair employment policies with recognition of the basic rights of academic and professional appointees. Recommendations are made to ensure fair employment policies and safeguards to ensure nondiscrimination and equal opportunity, including the right to participate in collective bargaining for academic and professional appointees.
