Why Should I Join?

Because ASPRO has protected your pay, benefits and job security. Because you and your academic staff colleagues will not have to do it alone.

Perhaps you are an Academic Staff member who is concerned about how you are treated on campus or within the University System. You want to be a professional committed to the students and the work that you do, but want a sense of security about your employment. You are extremely busy, don’t have the time or may be uncomfortable with speaking out publicly –YOU SHOULD JOIN ASPRO.

Perhaps you are an Academic Staff leader on your campus. You serve on your campus’s Academic Staff Assembly or Senate. You are comfortable talking with administrators. You are willing to contact legislators or testify before a legislative committee. You have a desire to be involved – YOU SHOULD JOIN ASPRO.

You will benefit.

  • Access to “insider” information affecting your job and your life.

  • A place to quietly raise concerns that can be investigated and addressed without calling attention to yourself.

  • Your role at the University will be championed to Legislators, System Administration, and the Regents.

  • Advocates will be working to protect your job, your salary, and your employment benefits.

Your membership strengthens ASPRO

Who benefits?
