Welcome to the AAUP – Central State University Chapter’s Website
In unity, we seek strength. But strength unaccompanied by principle is a captive of its own unreasoned force. We therefore endeavor here to set forth those principles which preserve our unity in fairness and justice.
As academicians, we recognize an obligation: the character and course of a university, while responsive to many publics, will be established by its faculty either by default or design. We believe that the character and course must be deliberate and be illumined by the faculty’s scholarly vision.
Our unity, then, is the servant of our academic mission. It is the instrument of our will by which vision is transformed into purpose and purpose into reality. It seeks ever to advance the faculty’s necessary participation and paramount decision in affecting the evolving nature of our university.
