Coalition on the Academic Workforce

The Coalition on the Academic Workforce (CAW) was established in 1997 by a group of learned societies in the humanities and social sciences. About twenty-five organizations currently participate in the coalition, including the AAUP.

Coalition of Contingent Academic Labor

The Coalition of Contingent Academic Labor is a loose network of activists involved in contingent faculty issues. Its primary functions are to share information, educate our colleagues and the public, and build solidarity among the scattered ranks of faculty activists.

National Mobilization for Equity

The National Mobilization for Equity is a growing coalition of organizations representing some seven million members who are committed to alleviating the present staffing crisis in higher education.

Student Aid Alliance

The Student Aid Alliance is a group of over seventy-five organizations who share the goal of preserving and strengthening student aid programs. These programs include Pell Grants, Perkins loans, federal work-study programs, and many more. The Alliance helps ensure that these programs are available to help any student afford higher education. It does so by educating the public about these programs and encouraging members of congress to continue to fund them.
