A state conference is formed when several chapters in a state decide to work together to advance AAUP policies and goals. Through a state conference, existing chapters are able to have more influence statewide and new chapters can find the support and guidance they need closer to home. The Assembly of State Conferences (ASC) is the umbrella organization for individual state AAUP conferences. The ASC provides training and helps to coordinate state activities in areas such as government relations, academic freedom and tenure, membership development, and communications. The ASC also supports the work of state conferences.
See a directory of state conferences. See the ASC officers.
A number of AAUP chapters and state conferences employ staff. These field staff have formed the Field Staff Association, which meets at the June Annual Meeting. Learn more about the Field Staff Association and resources for field staff.
