AAUP Summer Institute Coming to Colorado
The Colorado Conference is proud to report that the next AAUP Summer Institute will be held in Colorado, on the University of Denver campus, July 23-26. The Colorado location honors the work that our Conference has done over the last few years supporting academic freedom and shared governance, including the very successful shared governance meeting that we sponsored in Durango last fall. Please mark your calendars. Preliminary details are on the National AAUP website. The Colorado Conference will be hosting a welcoming reception for all AAUP members and guests on Wednesday evening, July 22, on the University of Denver campus. This event will be open to all members and guests irrespective of participation in the Summer Institute. More details about that event will follow.
The AAUP Summer Institute is the national organization’s most popular program. Organizers, data analysts, seasoned campaigners, and issue experts help build skills that make participants better advocates for AAUP principles and higher education generally. The Institute also provides plenty of time for social events, informal networking, and exploring the host city. Please see this video created by participants in last year’s Summer Institute.
The AAUP Colorado Conference will have a small number of stipends available for conference members who would like to participate in the Institute so please contact your chapter officers with your expression of interest. We will be reviewing these requests at our next Executive Committee meeting in early April. Please check the National AAUP website for additional information on AAUP Summer Institute scholarships— details are not yet available but the information should be posted soon. Watch this space.
We hope you will join us and our DU Chapter in welcoming AAUP colleagues from across the country to Denver.
