Record of the Council June 12 and 14, 1998


The Council of the Association met on June 12 and 14, 1998, in conjunction with the annual meeting at the Hotel Washington in Washington, D.C.1 President James E. Perley presided. Members of the Council (with the exceptions of Professors Gloria A. Mixon and John Watanen, Jr.) were present, as was General Counsel Michael A. Olivas. General Secretary Mary Burgan and other members of the staff were in attendance. Professor Kenneth Harwood served as parliamentarian.

Professors James M. Bergquist, Robert M. O'Neil, James T. Richardson, and Larry G. Gerber reported respectively for Committee O on Organization, Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure, Committee R on Government Relations, and Committee T on College and University Government. Associate Secretary Jonathan Knight reported for the Ad Hoc Personnel Committee. Professors Estelle S. Gellman and John E. Hopper reported respectively for the Collective Bargaining Congress and the Assembly of State Conferences. Professor Olivas, in addition to delivering the report of the general counsel, reported for the Election Committee.

AAUP Election

Professor Olivas reported that the Election Committee considered five alleged violations of bylaws in the Association's recent election. It determined that three violations had occurred, none of which affected the election results. The committee suggests that the 1998-99 Election Committee address the system of processing requests for mailing labels and that it clarify rules regarding the content of chapter and conference newsletters and the role of the AAUP Listserv.

Relocation of AAUP Records

Associate General Secretary Jordan E. Kurland reported on the intended donation of the Association's closed case files and other historic records, which are currently housed in the Washington office, to the George Washington University library. Acting on the recommendations of Committee H on the History of the Association and Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure, the Council authorized the general secretary to execute a deed of gift with the university.

Council Districts

Professor Bergquist, chair of Committee O, presented a proposal from the committee for realignment of Council districts. The Council voted to redistrict as follows: District I-Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah; District II-Alaska, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, Wyoming; District III-Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin; District IV-Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri; District V-Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, the Virgin Islands, West Virginia; District VI-Canada, Foreign, Guam, Ohio; District VII-New Jersey; District VIII-New York; District IX-Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont; and District X-Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia.

1997 and 1998 Association Budgets

Secretary-Treasurer Kerry E. Grant reported the Association ended 1997 with a deficit of $178,677, including income taxes, unused leave expense, and $ 158,616 for postretirement health expenses. He noted that the final amount is lower than the budgeted deficit of $241,000 that had been approved at the November 1997 Council meeting. For 1998, he reported a projected surplus of $3,600, in contrast to a previously anticipated $56,000 deficit, because of unexpected revenues from the sale of salary survey data and a rebate from the group life insurance company.

Academic Freedom and Tenure

Professor Robert M. O'Neil, chair of Committee A, received the Council's concurrence in statements from the committee to the 1998 annual meeting recommending that Brigham Young University, the University of the District of Columbia, and Lawrence Technological University (Michigan) be placed on the Association's list of censured administrations. …
