#TurnItUP and #ReadUP

We use the hashtag #ReadUP year-round to communicate the core of our mission: valuable scholarship and writing on any topic you can imagine. (It's pronounced "Read up" to encomapass the entire AAUP community‚ not just U.P.'s!) In 2018, we're promoting the hashtag #TurnItUP to emphasize the work our members do in amplifying voices, communities, ideas, and scholarship.

Read for inspiration on how the tag can be effectively used across social media, at academic conferences and book fairs, and even in print marketing materials >

Testimonials

We periodically collect testimonials on the importance of university presses and mission-driven publishers from scholars, authors, booksellers, policy makers, and university leadership.

A wide collection of further testimonials from writers, scholars, and public figures can be read here and here.

These words of support and celebration are useful reminders of the range and passion of our audiences, the depths of the needs and the breadth of the communities that our mission serves.
