Past Annual Meetings

The AAUP Annual Meetings are the most important events on the Association's calendar. AAUP conducts much of its essential work at these meeting: including the Business Meeting, the inauguration of new officers, board members, and committee terms, and the awarding of the Constituency Award. The meetings are also vibrant and collegial gatherings where much is learned and shared; and partnerships, friendships, and mentoring relationships are cemented.

The Association maintains an archive of past annual meeting programs and other resources here. You can also find a store of shared conference knowledge, including notes and presentations, through the AAUPWiki.
