Summary

An update on academic freedom cases and complaints made to the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) is presented. AAUP responded to 1,222 academic freedom cases in 1986, an increase of 20% in the number of cases handled in the 2 preceding years. Two institutions were added to AAUP's list of censured administrations: Clark College (Georgia), and Talledega College (Alabama). In addition, three institutions were removed from the list: Troy State University (Alabama), censured 1969, Laredo Junior College (Texas), censured 1971, and Voorhees College (Texas), censured 1974. The full texts of the recommendations concerning censure for these five colleges are presented. Information is also provided on the University of Northern Colorado, which was placed on the list of censured administrations in 1984. Additional schools that were investigated by AAUP for issues such as excessive use of probation and nonrenewal of contracts of long-time faculty are also covered: Pennsylvania State University, Mount Ida College (Massachusetts), Jackson State University (Mississippi), and Seton Hall University (New Jersey). A chart provides information on the status of cases and complaints for 1981 through 1986. (SW)
