TAUP is Temple University's union of faculty, librarians and academic professionals. As the professionals engaging in teaching, research and academic support, we negotiate with the administration to insure a high quality work environment to fulfill the most central functions of the University.

"If it weren't for TAUP, tenure-line faculty would have far less voice in the merit, tenure and promotion processes. In addition, the percentage increase for tenure and promotion would be far lower and we would not have a de facto sabbatical policy. And if not for TAUP, we would not have health care coverage that in many ways is better than that of Penn faculty. In unity there is strength, in division there is weakness...all teaching and research at Temple should be valued and remunerated fairly and that's why I'm glad that TAUP includes all of our faculty ranks."
