1940 AAUP Statement on Academic Freedom

AAUP Utah Conference

Statement of Purpose

Defense of academic freedom is the central purpose of UVU-AAUP. Academic freedom is public trust granted to professors as professionals. Claims to academic freedom are legitimate if the inquiry furthers understanding of the human condition and/or natural process. Autonomy of inquiry, unfettered by political pressure, is the élan vital of the academic enterprise.

Utah Conference

The Utah Conference of the AAUP is a consortium of institutions of higher
education aimed at networking and mutual support. The Conference sponsors an annual symposium on academic freedom issues in Utah.

The AAUP-Utah Conference currently includes:

Utah Valley University
Westminster College of Salt Lake
