You join the AAUP to protect academic freedom, shared governance, and the faculty voice. But membership brings more tangible benefits, too:
Your AAUP membership gives you exclusive access to the expertise of AAUP staff, members, and leaders. Our lineup of guidebooks, toolkits, and webinars put the resources to defend academic freedom, ensure economic security, and advance faculty governance for all faculty at your fingertips.
Your membership includes a subscription to Academe, the bimonthly magazine of the AAUP, which includes the Association’s Annual Report on the Economic Status of the Profession (also known as the “salary survey”).
Call the Chronicle’s AAUP line at 1-800-728-2803 for the special AAUP discount of 20% off print and digital subscriptions.
Professional Liability Insurance
This comprehensive coverage designed exclusively for AAUP members provides protection in the event of costly litigation related to your professional duties as a faculty member, librarian, researcher, or member of an instructional staff employed in an institution of higher education.
An affordable major medical plan may be hard to find if you are not covered under a college or university policy. We offer plans from some of the top health insurance carriers in the country. You can also shop for short term medical plans, which may be an affordable alternative to major medical plans. Licensed agents in all 50 states can help you choose the option that best fits your needs. Small employer options, ideal for groups of up to 50, are also available.
Long-Term Care Insurance
Long-Term Care Resources offers customized plans to help you manage care and protect assets in case you suffer long term effects of an accident or debilitating disease.
The Accident Insurance Plan provides inexpensive protection against financial loss from an accident if the accident results in death or loss of limbs, hearing, speech, or sight. Benefit levels between $50,000 and $500,000 are available. A unique educational rider is part of family coverage. All AAUP members under seventy are guaranteed coverage, as are their families.
