Welcome to the Columbia University Chapter of the AAUP
Columbia University has hosted an AAUP Chapter in the past, as evidenced by this announcement, from the March 11, 1935 Spectator.
The speakers that evening were Robert Haig and Carl Shoup, both economists, and Roswell Magill and Edwin Patterson, law professors with specialties in tax law; Magill also served as Under Secretary of the Treasury. Wonder if they were discussing the parlous state of university finances?
The AAUP recently voted to affiliate with the American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO. Together, the AAUP and AFT now represent more than 300,000 higher-education workers nationwide, more than any other union. Read more about this affiliation here.
As of August 1, 2022, all AAUP members are now also AFT members.
Concerned about increasingly top-down decision-making? The erosion of shared faculty governance? The university’s restructuring and priorities? Join us!
Columbia University affiliates who join the AAUP are automatically members of our Chapter. You can join the AAUP here.
