The UNH Chapter of American Association of University Professors (AAUP) has served as the faculty's collective bargaining agent since 1990. Over several contracts, we have worked successfully to improve faculty salaries, fringe benefits, support faculty governance in the administration of the University, and enhance general working conditions for all faculty. Your membership and participation are essential to insure that these efforts will continue.

You are also able to vote for union leadership or be a candidate for a leadership office. As a member, you have the opportunity to shape the future of teaching and academic freedom at UNH and beyond.
