Biographical/Historical Note

Since its formation in 1915, the American Association of University Professors has served as an important representative body, articulating the interests and concerns of teachers and research scholars. The AAUP-Florida, established in 1930 by twenty-three members of the University of Florida faculty, has taken a most active role in promoting and protecting established professional standards.


Scope and Content

The breadth of this collection renders the AAUP materials a valuable resource to the researcher interested in the dynamics of faculty-university relations. A significant portion of the files contain materials relating to the various committees within AAUP-Florida. These files provide information about the priorities of the organization. In the committee forum, members dealt with both emerging social issues (such as racial and sexual equality) and perennial concerns, notably academic freedom and tenure. Among the more interesting of the non-committee files is the folder entitled "desegregation" which pertains to the debate over whether or not to enroll black students in the 1950s.

Materials are arranged alphabetically by subject. Box 21 of this collection contains files documenting faculty evaluations and grievances. These files are restricted at the request of the Chapter. Please consult with the archivist if any questions should arise regarding this issue. An effort has been made to remove this type of material from the general subject files. The researcher is requested to bring any such material found in the general files to the attention of the archivist.
