Join AAUP Today!

Welcome to Portland State University!

We are the Portland State University chapter of the American Association of University Professors (PSU-AAUP) and represent Tenure-Track Faculty, Non-Tenure-Track Faculty, and Academic Professionals. We are the largest of 6 unions that represent the employees of Portland State. Nearly all employees at PSU are members of the union and pay member dues for collective bargaining and contract enforcement.

If you haven’t already, you will receive a welcome packet of information to your inbox.

A virtual version of that packet is listed below and includes a membership application, which we ask you to fill out and return at your earliest convenience (please email us for a DocuSign version), and a few helpful resources to get you started.  You can send your application or any questions to, or SMSU 232.
