The One Faculty campaign grows out of the AAUP's long history as an
organization seeking to improve working conditions, shared governance,
economic security, and academic freedom for all those who teach and do
research in our universities and colleges. We believe that these issues
are important to all faculty, including full- and part-time non-tenure-track faculty, and those who are on the tenure-track.
Through the One Faculty campaign, AAUP staff, leaders, and members
are working together to develop tools that faculty can use on our
campuses to gain concrete improvements in job security and working
conditions for faculty on contingent appointments.
Especially now, when we are facing administrative bloat, increased
attacks on academic freedom, and a further narrowing of options for
faculty governance, it is essential that we stand together as One
Faculty. When we speak and act with one voice, we demonstrate our
commitment to our profession, our students, and one another. Working
together through our chapters and state conferences results in more
equitable handbook and contract language, more robust shared governance,
and better educational policies. Join with us to improve working
conditions for everyone doing our work. For more information, call or
