Towson AAUP’s membership is strong and growing--we already have over 100
members. If each of those members brought in just one colleague our
numbers would double and our voice of advocacy would be that much
Our 3rd Annual September Crab Feast / Bull Roast was a big
success, as a social event and as a membership drive. The event was
well attended by family and friends, there was a bountiful spread of
delicious food, and everyone had a great time. Keep the 4th
Annual September Crab Feast / Bull Roast in mind as dates will be
forthcoming later in the semester.
Second Friday events have also become a lively and popular event, always
sparking interesting conversation and debate among faculty. After the
talks, everyone usually ends up at the University Club for happy hour.
This has been a good membership draw and, more importantly, a nice
chance to engage in the community.
Support among faculty is steadily rising and we are reaching a more and
more diverse population through different kinds of events. We appreciate
the support of the membership and of Provost Clements over the last
couple of year.
