Colorado Conference  (AAUP-CO)












Welcome to our website. Welcome to our website. We have made a lot of changes and hope you will find the new format more user friendly. Please let us know if you have any suggestions for improvements, even grammatical errors! (contact Dana Waller)

We have had a very exciting year: 2 new Chapters (CU-Boulder, Naropa), 2 bills signed by the Governor (adjunct health insurance study, requiring political balance on governing boards), and being recognized at the National level for our achievements (see below).

This fall we will be hosting our General Secretary, Roger Bowen, again: this time he is coming out to help solidify our positions with CCHE, CU-Boulder, CU, UNC, and Mines. We will be holding an Executive Committee Retreat to discuss restructuring (we are having growing pains, which is good), and to provide an opportunity for our more remote Chapters to participate in our development. Our Annual Meeting will be the first part of November, but you will have to keep your eye out for the Fall newsletter, or the calendar link to your left, for more details.

Thank you all for your help. We couldn't do it without you.

 AAUP's mission

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. 



Waller Sumberg

In June, at the AAUP Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, Dana Waller received the Al Sumberg Award for "significant legislative achievements on behalf of Academic Freedom and Shared Governance in Colorado." Dana was able to meet Al, who was attending the meeting as an honored 50 year member, and hear his stories of when he was AAUP's first lobbyist, and he would call on Pres. Kennedy to discuss the state of higher education.
