As we head into the fall term, I’m writing to make sure you know about resources that are available to you as an AAUP member. (Many require your website login. Forgot your password?)
Each semester, we offer webinars about topics of interest to faculty, ranging from the nuts and bolts of what should be in a faculty handbook to threats to academic freedom in the Trump era. You can watch recordings of past webinars here. Our first webinar of the fall semester will focus on digital organizing/issue organizing, and we’ll send you an e-mail when the date is set.
In response to political events in the past year, we have developed FAQs on the following topics:
We also offer informational resources on a variety of topics of interest to faculty and other academic professionals:
- The Family and Medical Leave Act
- Navigating Faculty Appointments
- Pregnancy in the Academy
- Faculty Handbooks as Enforceable Contracts
- Unemployment Compensation for Faculty in Contingent Appointments
Members receive a subscription to Academe Magazine; this will be delivered to you electronically or you can opt in to the print edition.
We also offer insurance programs, described here.
