History:
    This is not the first chapter of AAUP to be organized at SLU.  In 2006 there was a chapter organized; it seems to have lasted three years. The Faculty Senate commented about it at the time of its founding:

Mark Knuepfer announced that efforts are underway to start a local AAUP chapter at SLU. He provided some background on the AAUP, noting that there currently are 37 AAUP members on campus. The new chapter will need officers and bylaws. He asked senators to think about issues with which the AAUP might be able to help. J. Griesbach noted that the EC views the AAUP as a complimentary organization and said the Faculty Senate will support this endeavor.
