This is the home page of the Georgia Tech Chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP).

The AAUP is an association of professors and academic professionals. Our chapter is dedicated to increasing faculty governance and academic freedom at GT and nationally. It provides a unique and responsive Institute-wide alternative for improving GT to the benefit of the entire Yellow Jacket community by positively engaging the faculty and administration alike.  We are not a union.

The GT AAUP chapter is playing an important role in GT’s Covid response, stressing academic freedom, health, and hygiene, among other issues.  In addition, we are sure you noticed in the press that the AAUP statewide organization is heavily involved in lobbying the BOR and USG.  Of particular immediate relevance to our current mission is the stance of AAUP on academic governance during Covid-19: https://www.aaup.org/news/principles-academic-governance-during-covid-19-pandemic#.Xv9CnyhKhhF
