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

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.

The AAUP released a report of an investigation of issues of academic governance at Vermont Law School (VLS), the state’s only legal education institution, finding unacceptable conditions of academic governance prevail at the law school.
