The Towson chapter of the AAUP is active and growing!
We currently have 100 members, a significant increase over past years.
Nevertheless, this number represents only about 25% (in fact, a little
bit less) of full-time faculty at Towson. The strength of our organization
lies in the number of voices it represents. If every member recruited
two new members, the chapter would represent over 50% of Towson's faculty.
Please encourage your colleagues to contribute to the vitality of Towson's
academic community by joining the Towson chapter of the AAUP.
Members of Towson's AAUP chapter must also join the
AAUP at the national level in order to be considered active members
of the AAUP. Members at the national level can participate in the governance
and direction of the AAUP. In addition, national members are eligible
for special deals such as group insurance through the AAUP. National
membership also includes a subscription to Academe, the AAUP
bimonthly journal, which features the annual salary report, informative
articles on the state of the profession, and reports on issues of shared
governance and actions taken by faculty nationwide. Please consider
joining the AAUP at the national level.
