Biographical / Historical Note

The Association of University of Wisconsin Faculties (TAUWF) exists to promote the general educational welfare of University of Wisconsin System universities and to promote the economic welfare of their faculty. The organization was founded in the 1920s as the Association of Wisconsin Normal School Teachers. In the 1950s, as the Wisconsin normal schools evolved into teachers’ colleges granting baccalaureate degrees in education and the liberal arts, its name changed to the Association of Wisconsin State College Faculties (AWSCF). In 1964, after the Wisconsin State Colleges developed graduate programs, the name changed again to the Association of Wisconsin State University Faculties (AWSUF). The 1972 merger of the Wisconsin State Universities and the University of Wisconsin under the University of Wisconsin System resulted in one more name change to The Association of University of Wisconsin Faculties.

TAUWF represents faculty and academic staff members employed by all of the University of Wisconsin System campuses except Madison. While the faculty and academic staff at these institutions are not unionized, TAUWF has been affiliated with the Wisconsin Federation of Teachers, as well as the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. Throughout its existence, TAUWF has addressed faculty and academic staff labor issues, such as collective bargaining, tenure and promotion procedures, and salaries and benefits.

The Eau Claire chapter records date back to 1963, although the chapter appears not to have had a formal constitution until 1966. The local chapter addressed faculty concerns about tenure and promotion, faculty and academic staff salaries, and representation in university and UW System governance.

Content Description

The TAUWF records are divided into two subseries: Subseries 1 contains the records of the Eau Claire chapter, while Subseries 2 holds records of the state organization, presumably collected by, and in some cases produced by Eau Claire chapter members.
