Member Benefits

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


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.")

Marsh Affinity Group Services

Members also can secure valuable insurance protection—including professional liability, term life, disability, and health insurance—the plans offer economical group rates through AAUP’s relationship with Marsh Affinity Group Services.  Marsh, the world’s number one insurance services company, helps millions of association members across America protect their assets with insurance programs and other loss-management strategies.

Expanded Members-Only Resources Include:

  • Webinars on topics including strengthening faculty handbooks, good-faith bargaining, working with the media, and other topics of interest to advocacy and union AAUP chapters. Participation in the webinars is generally limited to AAUP members and field staff, and you can now find recordings and materials from the webinars on the web.
  • Information on our One Faculty campaign, which is designed to help collective bargaining and advocacy chapters or state conferences to make concrete gains in the areas of job security, compensation, and/or governance inclusion for faculty with contingent appointments. It explains why a united faculty is a strong faculty and includes specific guidelines for bargaining key contract issues.
  • A new Organizing Toolkit containing proven AAUP organizing practices and materials to help both new and established chapters organize to win. The toolkit provides information about how contingent and tenure-track faculty can build and strengthen membership. It also explains how to organize issue campaigns in advocacy chapters and contract campaigns in bargaining chapters.
  • Additions to our Local Toolkit, including guidance on building chapter websites. Guidebooks on Navigating Faculty Appointments, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and Faculty Handbooks as Enforceable Contracts.
