AAUP Reassures Members It Is Rebounding, but Challenges Remain
Howard, Jennifer
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n40 pA12 Jun 2009
The American Association of University Professors is back on track after the financial and organizational derailments it endured over the past three years. That was the message the group's leadership reiterated throughout the business portion of the association's 95th annual meeting in June 2009. The overall meeting was attended by about 230 people, slightly fewer than last year's meeting, which attracted about 245 attendees, according to the group. An additional 140 people attended a concurrent AAUP meeting on academic freedom and globalization. At the business meeting, the association placed four institutions on its censure list for academic-freedom violations and removed another from the list. But at plenary sessions, the discussion repeatedly returned to the group's push to reorient itself, financially and organizationally.
