Welcome to the Villanova Chapter of the AAUP!

The American Association of University Professors is the professional society which spans all disciplines in higher education. The AAUP in its Villanova Chapter (founded in 1941) and in its state and national offices serves all faculty whether they are members of the Association or not. The role of the faculty in higher education in the nation and in the world is strengthened, however, by those who express their professional commitment through membership in the Association.

Executive Committee

The Villanova chapter is proud to have hosted the annual meeting of the PA Division of the AAUP on October 3, 2015 with our very own Gerald Beyer as keynote speaker.
