In This Critical Year New Members May Join AAUP for Half Price
(An Offer You Can Refuse But Probably Shouldn't)

New members may join national AAUP, the Kentucky Conference, and UK-AAUP free for the first six months. After that tenured faculty pay $10.83 per month; non-tenured pay $6.00 per month.

Membership includes the bimonthly publication Academe and a number of other benefits,

The most crucial decision UK will make in years -- the choice of a President -- is coming up quickly.
UK-AAUP intends to continue to make the voice of the faculty heard. (Last spring we sponsored a meeting of the faculty together with the faculty representatives on the Presidential Search Committee. We intend another such meeting this fall.) But we need your ideas, your help, and your membership. If you have been a member in the past and have let your membership lapse, please renew.

To join, or for additional information,  please e-mail or phone 257-6494.
