WEST LAFAYETTE, INDIANA -- Representatives from multiple American Association of University Professor chapters across Indiana universities converged on West Lafayette for a day-long strategy session focused on organizing for faculty rights in Indiana. The AAUP both nationally and locally is a leading force in organizing for faculty rights in higher education, and achieved several milestones this past year.
Faculty from Purdue West Lafayette, Purdue Northwest, IU-PU Fort Wayne, and Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis held a day-long strategy session February 2 to set a path for chapters in Indiana over the coming year.
Common themes at the strategy meeting were the erosion of tenure and faculty governance in Indiana; the increasing use of adjuncts and contingent abor by Indiana universities; increased privatization of essential education services; threats to faculty intellectual property rights spurred by on-line education and privatization.
