General meetings are open to non-members.
Voting members of the Vanderbilt chapter need to be members of the national AAUP organization.
To join our local chapter:
- Join the National AAUP using the link below:
2. Once you have your national AAUP membership, please fill out our local chapter membership form and email a copy of your membership receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will get in touch about upcoming meetings and events.
In addition to membership in the local chapter, AAUP national membership dues (offered on a sliding scale) cover benefits such as access to insurance in case of legal disputes against our employer. However, Vanderbilt AAUP does not want membership dues to present a barrier to potential members. To this end, we have created the Mutual Aid Fund to enable any non-tenure track instructors, including lecturers and graduate students, to have their costs offset by the general membership. If membership costs are a barrier to you, we welcome you to email VanderbiltAAUP@gmail.com with the total cost of your yearly dues, based on the AAUP’s sliding scale chart (https://www.aaup.org/membership/join). Your identity will only be known by the members of the local chapter committee, who will be responsible for dispensing the funds to you.
