Developments Relating to Association Censure and Sanction

The Association’s staff has prepared the following brief accounts of significant developments during the past year at institutions whose administrations have incurred AAUP censure (for departures from principles of academic freedom and tenure) or at institutions that are under AAUP sanction (for infringement of academic governance standards).

AAUP Censures Two Administrations, Removes Two from Censure

Delegates to the AAUP's Ninety-ninth Annual Meeting voted to place the administrations of Southern University, Baton Rouge and National Louis University  on the AAUP’s list of censured administrations and to remove Our Lady of Holy Cross College and St. Bonaventure University from the list. Censure by the AAUP informs the academic community that the administration of an institution has not adhered to generally recognized principles of academic freedom and tenure.

AAUP Censures Four, Removes Censure from One

Censure by the AAUP informs the academic community that the administration of an institution has not adhered to generally recognized principles of academic freedom and tenure. With these actions, fifty-six institutions are currently on the censure list.
