Welcome to the Washington State University Chapter of the American Association of University Professors
WE ARE ABOUT:
We assert the need for extensive and engaged faculty input in decisions related to budget (see: collaborative budgeting) , cuts to programs and related personnel issues. We maintain there is strength in numbers and that a strong advocacy chapter is needed to respond to insist on the inclusion of faculty voices and participation in governance of the university
Reference and Referral
We recognize that at times faculty may need referrals to legal services. We keep an updated list of lawyers available to deal with employment related issues as well as human and civil rights issues in Washington State. We do not recommend lawyers and neither does the national AAUP office.
Freedom of Speech
At the heart of academic freedom lies freedom of speech. Here we keep a blog of articles on assaults to freedom of speech and academic freedom. As needed, we respond to these formally.
Ending Pay Inequity
We all know the story well: professorial salaries have stagnated and administrative salaries (as well as administrative positions) continue to rise. We work to address the changes needed to end these disparities.
