The Saint Anselm College chapter of the American Association of University Professors was founded in 1970. Since then it has worked to:
protect academic freedom
promote shared governance
inform and support faculty
advocate for equitable working conditions
recognize faculty excellence
The chapter holds events to help keep all faculty up to date on developments across academia. Membership in the AAUP provides additional tools for staying an informed member of the professoriate.
To join the Saint Anselm College chapter, faculty members should first join the national AAUP. National membership fees are scaled by salary, and you can use your faculty development funds toward membership. You can join on the AAUP website. Please email the chapter secretary to inform them you have joined at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Saint Anselm College chapter is not a collective bargaining chapter. Please email the chapter secretary for a copy of the Chapter Constitution for more information.
Each year the Saint Anselm College AAUP Chapter presents the Distinguished Faculty Award at graduation. The award reads: "For excellence in teaching and scholarship, contributions to the academic community through active and positive relations with colleagues and students, and an involved concern for humanity." Nominations are solicited from the faculty and the selection is made by current and immediate past officers of the chapter. Recipients include:
