About Us

Democracy thrives on dissent, critical inquiry, free speech, and free research. Today more than ever, these things are under attack. Academics are being targeted and harassed and the freedom to join together on the job is in jeopardy. Producers of independent thought and knowledge, including faculty, scientists, and journalists, are threatened. One Faculty, One Resistance is a campaign of the American Association of University Professors that brings together our work fighting harassment, protecting academic freedom and the right to research freely, and uniting faculty.

AAUP has a long history as an organization seeking to improve working conditions, shared governance, economic security, and academic freedom for all those who teach and do research in our universities and colleges. We believe that these issues are important to all faculty, including full- and part-time non-tenure-track faculty, and those who are on the tenure-track.

AAUP staff, leaders, and members are working together to develop tools that faculty can use on our campuses to gain concrete improvements in job security and working conditions for faculty on contingent appointments. Explore the site and check out our toolkits about fighting targeted harassment and the privatization trend.

As we face administrative bloat, increased attacks on academic freedom, and a further narrowing of options for faculty governance, it is essential that we stand together
