How to join the Faculty Welfare Committee/AAUP

The Faculty Welfare Committee/AAUP at Fairfield University is an ad hoc committee of the General Faculty and a chapter of the national AAUP. We promote the professional and economic interests, broadly defined, of the Fairfield University faculty. Any full-time faculty member at Fairfield may join the chapter by contacting the Membership Director or any officer. Dues are set annually by the membership and are normally deducted from each paycheck through payroll deduction. If you aren't a member, please consider joining. All our activities are open to all members of the faculty, but everything is funded entirely by  our dues-paying members.

By joining the FWC/AAUP, you are also joining national AAUP and the CT State Conference-AAUP. Most of the dues you pay to Fairfield are paid to national AAUP on your behalf, a very small amount goes to the CT State Conference, and the remaining small amount stays in the chapter for our local activities.

To join the FWC/AAUP, download the Authorization Agreement for Dues Deduction for FWC/AAUP dues, fill out your name and Employee ID number (found on your Stagcard) and send the signed form (electronically or in hard copy) to the Membership Director or the Treasurer.

Membership Director and Treasurer:
Prof. Paul Baginski
