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

Today the AAUP, along with the American Council on Education and over three dozen higher education groups and organizations, issued a joint letter calling on the House to pass H.R.5363, the FUTURE Act. This legislation, which would restore funding to HBCUs and streamline the FAFSA, offers practical solutions to critical issues facing students and institutions.

The AAUP joins Scholars at Risk in calling on "all parties, especially government and university authorities, to take immediate steps to de-escalate violence and ensure the safety and well-being of all persons connected with the demonstrations" in Hong Kong.
