Plan to attend the AAUP Annual Conference
Thursday and Friday, June 12–13: Henry Reichman, chair of the AAUP’s Committee on Academic Freedom and Tenure, will deliver the opening plenary address, “Can I Tweet That? Academic Freedom and Electronic Communications.” Presentations by faculty members and administrators from around the country will address the role of faculty in institutional decision making, collective bargaining in higher education, faculty working off the tenure track, assessment and accountability, the corporatization of teaching and research, academic freedom, and MOOCs and online education.
Thursday, June 12: Capitol Hill Day is your opportunity to meet with your senators and representative and tell the higher education story. If you will be participating, please sign up as part of the annual conference registration process. There is no fee, but pre-registration will enable us to send you materials beforehand. Contact your Congressional offices in advance to make an appointment, then attend an orientation session Wednesday evening or Thursday morning. (Capitol Hill Day is for AAUP members only.)
Friday, June 13: Network with your colleagues at an evening cash bar reception with complimentary hors d’oeuvres.
Saturday, June 14: Join us at a luncheon celebrating the AAUP’s centennial. At a banquet that night, we will honor fifty-year members and present AAUP awards.
In addition, the conference includes meetings of the AAUP Executive Committee and Council, the AAUP-CBC, and the Assembly of State Conferences. The annual meeting plenary (Saturday, June 14) will consider important business items such as investigations of alleged violations of academic freedom and tenure.
