Faculty Welfare Committee/AAUP
Excellence in Education

Fairfield University

The AAUP's mission 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 Faculty Welfare Committee/AAUP at Fairfield University is an ad hoc committee of the General Faculty and a chapter of the national American Association of University Professors. We promote faculty welfare, broadly defined, through chapter programs and activities designed to advance academic freedom, advance the economic and professional status of the faculty, encourage faculty participation in governance, and inform the community about AAUP standards and policy statements to ensure higher education's contribution to the common good.

Academic Freedom
for a
Free Society
