APSCUF works on behalf of student and faculty interests to provide the highest quality education at the most reasonable cost by ensuring a diversity of programs are available, taught by first-class professors who strive for the pursuit of educational excellence.

What began in 1937 as a professional association for faculty at Pennsylvania’s teacher colleges has grown into an organization touching the lives of more than 100,000 students and their families each year.

Today, the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties represents faculty members and coaches employed at Pennsylvania’s 14 publicly owned universities — the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.
