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 tentative CBAs for the NTE and TET bargaining units. These have been distributed via e-mail to all RCMs in the respective bargaining units along with ratification vote instructions. Aside from corrections of cross-references from one section or article to another, corrections of various dates, and other typo eliminations, this should be the way the new CBAs read, provided of course a majority of voters among the RCMs in the respective bargaining units vote for ratification.|
|Tentative agreements reached in CBA negotiations! See our CBA Negotiations page for a summary (and also a roster of our negotiating team, brief reports about each negotiating session, and an article-by-article summary table with links to detailed information about each individual article that either party proposes to include in the CBA).|
Noteworthy links: Ohio Conference of the AAUP; The Academe Blog (opinions published there do not necessarily represent the policies of AAUP); Academe Blog posts by Marty Kich broadly segregated by topic, not necessarily Ohio-specific in scope: Ohio Higher Ed, Ohio Labor, Ohio Politics, and Stuff for a Slow Day; see also our links page

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.
