  • New AAUP Investigation Report | AAUP
    These are but some of the findings of arbitrary administrative behavior revealed by a new AAUP investigating committee report The report was produced by a committee of AAUP members with no previous involvement in the situation who reviewed extensive documentation and interviewed current and former faculty and administrators Among the report s main findings The claim that the university was in the midst of an enrollment emergency was unsubstantiated and indeed was contradicted by a former administrator responsible for managing enrollments suggesting that the claim was a pretext to justify dismissing faculty members The administration selected some sixty faculty members for release based mainly on its unsubstantiated assessment of their lack of merit effectively dismissing them for cause but without any demonstration of what the cause was The dismissed professors were denied basic academic due process to which they were entitled under the university s own regulations as well as under AAUP supported standards The four weeks of severance salary offered by the administration to all the fired faculty members was sorely deficient The administration pressured vulnerable faculty members to forfeit any right to appeal their dismissal and to release the university from any further claims by offering a modest additional amount of severance pay two to eight weeks The administration made no serious or good faith effort to consult with faculty before taking the drastic step of terminating a quarter of the faculty and in fact showed consistent disregard for established faculty governance bodies The AAUP is well aware of the challenges that currently face many higher education institutions The case of Clark Atlanta University however provides a negative object lesson in how to address those challenges with arbitrary administrative actions grounded in insufficient evidence and undertaken in some cases against the evidence without consultation with the faculty and
