American Association of University Professors ∗ Washington State University
Draft Mission Statement: The primary mission of the Washington State University chapter of the American Association of University Professors is to support and enhance academic freedom and shared governance in our particular institutional setting. Washington State University, like all publicly funded universities, is subject to political, economic and social changes at the regional, national and international levels. These continual shifts necessitate that faculty and staff remain vigilant in the protection of core democratic values of university institutional life, that of academic freedom and shared governance. Besides responding to these macro context changes, the WSU chapter of the AAUP aspires to help chart future work lives that are intellectually and socially vibrant and sustainable. The WSU chapter of the AAUP sees its role as guardian of these values, supporter of faculty governance organizations, such as the Faculty Senate, and partner in creating a healthier academic environment.
