Administrative History Note.

The EMU-AAUP is the local chapter of the national organization of the American Association of University Professors. The mission of the national AAUP is "to advance academic freedom and shared governance, to define fundamental professional values and standards for higher education, and to ensure higher education's contribution to the common good." The EMU chapter was formed in 1974 as the bargaining unit (the "labor union") of all faculty at EMU, and the first faculty contract was negotiated that year. As the faculty's union, the EMU-AAUP advises its members on the process of tenure and promotion (based on each academic department's contractually mandated "Department Evaluation Document") and works with EMU administrators to assure that the terms of the negotiated faculty contract are met. When necessary, the EMU-AAUP represents individual faculty in grievances against the university administration, and it protects the entire faculty through a variety of actions. The EMU-AAUP also provides seminars and services on retirement and financial planning, and members of the EMU-AAUP enjoy all of the benefits of membership of the national AAUP organization.
