AAUP Foundation

Dear Colleague,

I’m proud of the work the AAUP Foundation has done this year to support academic freedom. Thanks to supporters like you, we were able to fund scholarships to the AAUP/AAUP-CBC Summer Institute, the publication of the Journal of Academic Freedom, and four investigations into alleged violations of academic freedom.

We also helped individual faculty members facing dismissal for reasons that implicated AAUP policies. Professor Robin Meade, who was summarily dismissed for writing a letter decrying her institution’s treatment of adjuncts, won reinstatement with support from the Foundation's Legal Defense Fund. In response, she wrote “Thank you and everyone at AAUP for all your support, both emotional and financial. Until you came along I really thought I was by myself.”

Please help us ensure that faculty like Robin don’t have to stand alone by making a contribution today!


Thank you for your generous support!

—Henry Reichman
