By joining the AAUP and becoming a member of its University of Iowa chapter you add your voice to others who are concerned about:

  • core issues such as tenure, academic freedom, shared governance, and due process, which the AAUP has fought to establish and defend for decades.
  • the decreased state support of the university and sky-rocketing student tuition.
  • the corporatization of higher education and the reduced role of faculty in governance.
  • the recent trend of hiring adjuncts, lecturers, and "visiting faculty" at low wages and no benefits rather than tenure-track faculty.
