Georgia Conference of the American Association of University Professors
The mission of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) is to advance academic freedom and shared governance, define fundamental professional values and standards for higher education, and ensure higher education’s contribution to the common good.
We assist faculty in public and private schools. We work with the University System of Georgia on policy and educate lawmakers on issues affecting higher education.
On this website faculty will find information and analysis that helps you understand the ongoing national attacks on higher education, the Georgia budget, state legislation, and the ongoing censure of the university system by the AAUP.
