AAUP Strategic Plan
The AAUP Board of Directors adopted a new strategic plan in October of 2014.
AAUP advances the essential role of a global community of publishers whose mission is to ensure academic excellence and cultivate knowledge.
• Intellectual Freedom
Build membership and foster internal and external collaborations
Increase the visibility of our members and their work through engagement with parent institutions, funders, policymakers, and the reading public
Conduct research that provides data and analyses to support advocacy and to inform publishing operations and new business models
Provide professional development leadership training
Support the goals of the Association with a sustainable, flexible, and robust financial and technology infrastructure
Strategies & Tactics
At the AAUP 2014 Annual Meeting, incoming President Barbara Kline Pope organized an innovative, interactive session that leveraged the brainpower and creativity of more than 400 members of AAUP's extended community to develop and vote on possible Tactics through which the Association can best reach its new Strategic Goals. The results of that session were distilled by AAUP staff, and the complete plan officially approved in October 2014.
AAUP's Strategies are articulated in the graphic below.
