Member Benefits

You join the AAUP to protect academic freedom, shared governance, and the faculty voice. But membership brings more tangible benefits, too:

Academe

Your membership includes a subscription to Academe, the bimonthly magazine of the AAUP, which includes the Association's Annual Report on the Economic Status of the Profession (also known as the "salary survey.")

Meet Some Members

AAUP members from all types of institutions talk about budgets and other challenges in higher ed, the explosion in contingent appointments, the importance of new organizing, and why the AAUP's role is key.

AAUP Shirts and Gear

We encourage chapters to buy AAUP T-shirts, pins, stickers, or other merchandise in bulk, which allows you to get lower prices and to buy from a union vendor.
