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.

Benefits and Impact of Joining AAUP

We are facing unprecedented challenges to academic freedom, tenure, and shared governance in Texas and beyond. The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) is on the front lines advocating for current and future faculty with university administrations, boards of regents, state legislatures, and the federal government.

We invite tenure-track, tenured and professional faculty as well as research staff, post-doctoral researchers, and graduate students to join AAUP. Since its founding in 1915, AAUP has helped to shape American higher education by developing the standards and procedures that maintain education quality and academic freedom in this country’s colleges and universities. AAUP is affiliated with the American Federation of Teachers (1.7M members including 148,000 faculty members).

Link to join AAUP or renew your AAUP membership.

Here are specific benefits to you as an AAUP member:

Membership funds will allow AAUP national to support

  • members facing tenure denial, termination, or disciplinary action
  • committees formulating educational, research and other policies

In November 2021, AAUP successfully intervened on behalf of Huriya Jabbar and other UT Austin faculty members on the GoKAR! Project after UT Austin administration had paused the project. (See the AAUP Academe article and Texas Tribune story.)
