The Iowa State University Chapter of the American Association of University Professors was formed in 1916. The Chapter’s constitution states that the purpose of the organization includes advancement of standard and ideals of teaching and research in this institution. The AAUP in general is primarily dedicated to protecting the academic freedom of professors, and has local chapters similar to ISU’s at about 800 campuses. The organization has participated in honors banquets and bargaining for fair salaries for professors as well as other benefits.
