Extent

Abstract
The UConn Chapter was established on 27 April 1932 when the constitution was adopted and officers elected. The Chapter title changed several times, reflecting the growth and development of the institution: Connecticut Agricultural College (1932-1933), Connecticut State College (1933-1939), and University of Connecticut (1939-present). The purpose of the national organization is to promote a “powerful body of informed opinion among university teachers and investigators of America” through the combined works of the local chapters. The national association establishes standards on such subjects as “academic freedom, tenure, and ethics” which, it hopes, will be actively supported by the local chapters.

The Chapter title changed several times, reflecting the growth and development of the institution: Connecticut Agricultural College (1932-1933),  Connecticut State College (1933-1939), and  University of Connecticut (1939-present). The purpose of the national organization is to promote a “powerful body of informed opinion among university teachers and investigators of America” through the combined works of the local chapters. The national association establishes standards on such subjects as “academic freedom, tenure, and ethics” which, it hopes, will be actively supported by the local chapters.
