Akron AAUP Protecting Academic Freedom For a Free Society
The University of Akron Chapter |
American Association of University Professors

Welcome to Akron-AAUP

Akron-AAUP is the University of Akron collective bargaining chapter of the American Association of University Professors. We represent all full-time bargaining unit faculty of the University of Akron. We became the exclusive bargaining agent when the faculty overwhelmingly voted for us in March, 2003.


Academic freedom is under attack in state houses across the country. The free and open exchange of ideas is fundamental to education and to our democracy. The Akron-AAUP exists to defend academic freedom. Join us in our fight by donating today.
