The purpose of the AAUP is to help advance academic freedom and shared governance, to define fundamental professional values and standards for higher education.

They are best known for assisting individual faculty members when there is the probability that academic freedom or due process rights have been violated. In addition to this "case work," the Association works with Congress and state legislators to promote effective higher education legislation, and promotes the profession and the purposes of higher education in the public eye.

There is presently no active chapter of AAUP on the UW-Madison campus.
