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

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.
