The author expresses his support for the reorganization plan of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). He suggested ways that will enhance its services. He said that if it wants to grow, if it wants to adapt to the evolving needs of the professorate, it must restructure. He says it can be more effective, both for its members and for higher education as a whole, if it becomes a more versatile organization. For example, as a professional organization, it could create a voluntary, password-protected member database.
