The new Australian Association of University Professors is not mucking about
It has members at 23 universities and observers suggest it is on-track to reach 20 branches. The association is also intent on expanding numbers, extending membership to aspros and emeritus professors.
A conference is scheduled for next year but the first public stance will be releasing the association’s manifesto, “Ten Pillars of a University”. Adrienne Stone, director of Uni Melbourne’s Centre for Comparative Constitutional Studies, is working on a preamble. A final draft is scheduled for a member vote in January.
