Welcome to the home page of Wright State University's chapter of AAUP: the American Association of University Professors. On this page, you'll find What's New; Not New, but still Noteworthy; Site Highlights; and general information about AAUP.
|We have posted the March, 2013 issue and the special April, 2013 issue of our Right Flier newsletter. The former, a twenty-one page issue, features short announcements and longer articles on a variety of topics. The latter, a special issue for NTE faculty, features an article entitled "What It Takes to Get a Good Contract".|
|Negotiations toward a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) applicable to the new Bargaining Unit consisting of all non-tenure-eligible "NTE" faculty have begun. See our CBA Negotiations page for more! See also our workload page for reports on discussions pertaining to that issue.|
|For all tenured Bargaining Unit faculty, and especially for those who were tenured recently, we have posted a document "For a Tenured Bargaining Unit Faculty Member, the 'Numbers' from Student Teaching Evaluations are for the Faculty Member Only a.k.a. Using the 'Headers' Distributed by AAUP-WSU".|
|Significant amendments to our Chapter Constitution and Bylaws were adopted in voting that concluded November 21, 2012. The changes reflect the successful conclusion of a campaign to bring collective bargaining rights to Wright State's non-tenure-eligible "NTE" faculty.|
|New CBA||Our new Collective Bargaining Agreement, ratified and signed in October, 2011, is available here in a form very close to how it was printed.|
|Agreements||Various agreements that supplement our Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) about such topics as health care coverage for older adult children (ages 26-27); the semester calendar; the Employee Severance Plan; grant support, administrative assignments, and summer teaching; workload and the conversion to semesters; non-standard computer equipment|
|Chapter Council||Each college has two representatives on our Chapter Council, one from the non-tenure-eligible (NTE) faculty, and one from the tenure-eligible and tenured (TET) faculty.|
|Videos||Videos of interest to members of AAUP-WSU are posted here.|

To quote from the association’s web site,
“The AAUP’s purpose is to advance academic freedom and shared governance, to define fundamental professional values and standards for higher education, and to ensure higher education's contribution to the common good.”
Wright State University’s chapter -- the AAUP-WSU-- welcomes all university faculty into its membership. The chapter also acts as the collective bargaining agent for two bargaining units: (1) tenure-track and tenured faculty (excepting those holding certain administrative appointments at the rank of chair and higher) on both the Dayton and Celina (Lake) campuses, and (2) non-tenure-eligible "NTE" faculty (excepting those with primary appointments in the Boonshoft School of Medicine or the School of Professional Psychology) on both the Dayton and Celina (Lake) campuses. All Wright State University faculty -- adjunct faculty, faculty with administrative appointments, faculty with primary appointments in the Boonshoft School of Medicine or the School of Professional Psychology -- as well as faculty in the two bargaining units described above -- are cordially invited to join the AAUP-WSU.
