The conference will take place at the Liaison Capitol Hill Hotel in Washington, DC, October 26–28, 2012. In addition to paper presentations and roundtable discussions on all aspects of shared faculty governance, the AAUP conference will once again include a series of training workshops for current and future governance leaders that will be spread out over the three days of the conference. Workshops will include discussions of new AAUP statements on the faculty role in program closures and on the role of contingent faculty in governance, as well as presidential search and evaluation, faculty involvement in budgeting, and the importance of faculty handbooks.
