Sign the AAUP Centennial Declaration Now

Show your support for restoring colleges and universities as a public good by signing the AAUP Centennial Declaration. We'll add your name to the growing ranks of citizens who support free and open higher education, learning opportunities that don't leave students with crippling debt, and new levels of engagement between campus and community. 

Nearly 100 years ago, the American Association of University Professors issued the 1915 Declaration of Principles on Academic Freedom and Academic Tenure. AAUP principles helped build the largest and most successful system of higher education in the world. 

One hundred years later, U.S. institutions of higher learning need a new commitment from faculty, students, and community allies to reclaim the possibilities that have been threatened by corporatization.
