We are the University of Maryland chapter of the American Association of University Professors

We believe that a better university is possible

Are you upset with the direction that the University of Maryland (UMD) has headed towards in recent years?

We are too.

So we started the UMD chapter of the American Association of University Professors (UMD AAUP) to push back against the corporatization of UMD and to build a more just and a more compassionate future for the university.

We are open to all graduate student instructors and researchers, adjunct and professional track faculty, library faculty, and tenure-track faculty.

See our About page for more details on our work and sign up here to get involved.

We want a university that does not just talk about democracy, justice, and racial and gender equality, but puts these values into action in its budget and operations.

If you too want to see a more compassionate, people-centered UMD, become a member of @UMD_AAUP today & join us for our first general meeting on Friday, April 16th at 3:00PM!
