A Bit of Background
The Carlow University Chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) believes that collaboration between faculty and Administration of the University in support of shared governance fosters a rich and generative educational environment. Such an environment benefits all members of the Carlow community and promotes a healthy system in which all are valued and flourish.
In addition, the Chapter endorses the National AAUP’s mission statement which is as follows:
The mission of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) is to advance academic freedom and shared governance; to define fundamental professional values and standards for higher education; to promote the economic security of faculty, academic professionals, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and all those engaged in teaching and research in higher education; to help the higher education community organize to make our goals a reality; and to ensure higher education’s contribution to the common good.
