AAUP-CCU joins AAUP-SC Section in time for 2022 National Conference

The Coastal Carolina Chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP-CCU) has joined the AAUP’s South Carolina (AAUP-SC) Section, in preparation for the upcoming National AAUP Conference and Biennial Meeting. This important gathering has been scheduled to take place in person between June 16 and 19 outside of Washington, DC. It will include a host of workshops and plenary sessions on topics such as remote teaching and research. It will also feature important committee updates, on timely issues, such as academic freedom and tenure, among other formal AAUP business.

By joining the AAUP-SC Section, our chapter would allow one delegate to vote on behalf of all participating SC chapters at the Conference. Several other chapters, including those of the University of South Carolina at Aiken and the University of South Carolina at Columbia, have also joined the Section. At the last biennial meeting, AAUP-CCU voted as a Section that included Clemson University, the College of Charleston, Francis Marion University, Furman University, and many others.

The process of joining sections is outlined here. Information about the 2022 AAUP Conference and Biennial Meeting is here.
