WASHINGTON -- The American Association of University Professors voted Saturday to censure two institutions -- Clark Atlanta University and the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston -- and to place Antioch University on the association's list of those with inappropriate governance systems. The disputes that led to the unanimous votes here at the AAUP's annual meeting all involved mass dismissals of faculty members.
Three national groups of historians -- the American Historical Association, the National Council on Public History and the Organization of American Historians -- have now all endorsed guidelines that suggest a new, broader approach to tenure when considering public historians.
