American Association of University Professors at The University of Texas at Austin. Twitter. Join AAUP.

Please contact Brian Evans if you are interested in advocating for academic freedom, tenure and other higher ed values in Texas.

Our advocacy is amplified by teaming with Texas AAUP, AAUP , Texas AFT, AFT, TACT, TFA, and other orgs.

AAUP@UT members are speaking for themselves as private citizens and not on behalf of any group, institution or organization.

Shared Goverance

The AAUP co-authored the seminal document on shared governance entitled 1966 Statement on Government of Colleges and Universities:

  • Jointly formulated by AAUP, ACE and AGB
  • UT Austin is a member of the American Council on Education (ACE)
  • UT System is a member of the Association of Governing Boards of Universities & Colleges (AGB)

The six-page document outlines the responsibilities of faculty, the President, and the governing board (UT System Board of Regents for us).
