The governing councils of the AFT and the American Association of University Professors are pursuing a historic affiliation that would create the largest alliance of faculty and staff in the country, strengthening faculty voice with nationwide reach and creating huge potential for future organizing growth and success. The alliance, if finalized by the AAUP delegate assembly in June, would marry the AFT’s successes in fighting for accessible and affordable higher education, respect for faculty, and academic freedom, with the AAUP’s focus on academic freedom, shared governance, tenure, and other standards that protect the critical thinking and knowledge that protect democracy.
