Matthew Dube On Vouching For The AAUP posted August 20, 2009
Maybe you were kidding about never having heard of the AAUP before? But if not, they are an at least modestly longstanding advocacy group for what-do-you-call-them, professional and vocational issues faced by University professors. I'm glad that they are there, and think that they do good work-- I like their statement, too.
I used them to get a discount at a hotel in Chattanooga, which offered discounts to teachers who were part of Unions, which is not the kind of group the AAUP is, but you know, a discount is a discount.
