The AAUP Collective Bargaining Congress is the umbrella organization for unionized AAUP chapters. We promote organizing among tenure-line and contingent faculty, academic professionals, and graduate employees and provide support to member chapters as they work to protect shared governance and academic freedom, to uphold professional standards and values, and to promote quality higher education.

AAUP & AAUP-CBC Updates

At the AAUP's annual conference three people will be honored for their extraordinary dedication and accomplishments as faculty activists. The AAUP's Georgina M. Smith Award will go to Jennifer K. Kerns of Portland State University and Christine Blasey Ford of Palo Alto University. The AAUP Marilyn Sternberg Award will go to Noeleen McIlvenna of Wright State University. The AAUP's Outstanding Achievement Award will go to the AAUP-Wright State University chapter.

This year’s report provides an overview of the results of the 2018–19 AAUP Faculty Compensation Survey. It includes figures and tables documenting changes since the 2008–09 academic year in the proportion of full professors who are women, the breakdown of full-time faculty by gender and academic rank, and women faculty’s average full-time salary compared to men’s. The report also explores some of the improved data on part-time faculty pay, and includes a new table showing retirement and health insurance contributions for part-time faculty.
