AAUP-KSU Welcome Message

AAUP-KSU is the Kent State University chapter of the American Association of University Professors. At the national level, the AAUP is known for its work in promoting positive academic values and shared governance, as well as protecting faculty against attacks on tenure and academic freedom. AAUP-KSU shares those interests and also serves as the collective bargaining agent for all full-time faculty at Kent State University. First established in 1978, there has been an AAUP chapter at Kent State for nearly thirty-five (35) years.

Our local chapter of AAUP serves as your “union” and is responsible for negotiating the terms and conditions of employment for all full-time faculty at KSU’s eight campuses.
