Six Louisiana institutions are under AAUP censure right now, and one of them, LSU-BR, is under double censure. The investigations that lead to censure are expensive.
This is why the national AAUP is depressed about us. No state has so many institutions under censure, and many have none. Louisiana is a small state with few members, and still has all this going on.
The former AAUP President told me point-blank that Louisiana was costing the organization more than it was bringing in in dues, intimating that they had no real interest in us.
I understood him to be saying he did not care if the AAUP dropped its role as a national organization. I do not feel it was his place to make that kind of plan.
