AAUP-Utica is the collective bargaining unit that represents faculty, librarians, and HEOP counselors of Utica University.

  • AAUP Utica/AFT 6786 (AAUP-Utica, for short) is the Utica University Chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT)
  • The unit was founded in the seventies to fight Syracuse University’s sale of Utica University (then, Utica College) to the state of New York and has remained as the sole bargaining agent for the College’s academic professionals.  With its contract, the unit ensures the place of academic professionals in shared governance at the University. As a chapter of the American Association of University Professors, AAUP-Utica helps fight locally and nationally for academic freedom, for the continued quality of American higher education, and for protecting the livelihood of those individuals who dedicate their lives to teaching, service, and research.
