Welcome to the Homepage of the UCLA Chapter of the American Association of University Professors
The Chapter’s purpose is to advocate on behalf of UCLA faculty members, and advance the principles of academic freedom, shared governance, and due process, that are the traditional concerns of the AAUP. Membership in the chapter is open to all faculty at UCLA. The national and state websites of the AAUP provide a wealth of information and resources for faculty and we urge you to visit those sites.
Membership in the Association is critical to supporting the profession both “at home” and throughout the rest of the country. In addition, members receive a subscription to the AAUP’s bi-monthly journal, Academe, and are eligible for a wide range of discounted insurance policies and other Affinity Program benefits.
The March for Science is a national movement to broadcast a nonpartisan message encouraging policymakers to champion and fund science that upholds the common good, and to enact evidence-based policy. We stand to be the largest march in the nation outside of the progenitor march in D.C. The March for Science will be held on April 22, 2017 in Pershing Square in downtown LA.
