American Association of University Professors

Founded in 1915 by Arthur O. Lovejoy and John Dewey, the noted pragmatist and educator, the purpose of the American Association of University Professors 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." For easy access, the site is divided into five sections, encompassing most of the organization's primary activities. The section of academic freedom and tenure includes numerous statements issued by the organization and a list of academic institutions that been censured by the Association during its history. The other section that will be particularly useful is the research section of the site, as it features annual reports on the economic status of professors and links to other sites dealing with higher education statistics. For those interested in joining the Association, membership information is available online, along with a regularly updated calendar of events and press releases.
