American ASSOCIATION OF
UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS

The Boston University chapter of the AAUP was formally recognized in April of 2021. Its formation arose out of conversations BU faculty had been having amongst themselves for some time. The chapter's members identify with the core values of the AAUP, which champions shared university governance, academic freedom, and economic security for all instructional and research employees.
