Ilinois Tech AAUP Chapter

Purpose

The Illinois Tech Chapter of the AAUP takes its mission from that of the national organization, first established in 1915:

"The mission of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) is to advance academic freedom and shared governance; to define fundamental professional values and standards for higher education; to promote the economic security of faculty, academic professionals, graduate students, post‐doctoral fellows, and all those engaged in teaching and research in higher education; to help the higher education community organize to make our goals a reality; and to ensure higher education's contribution to the common good. "

What we do

The Illinois Tech AAUP Chapter was established in 2020. We meet regularly throughout the year and serve as an advocacy and professional development organization for full-time and part-time academic faculty and staff and graduate students.
