Introducing AAUP-BHSNJ

About us

         The American Association of University Professors – Biomedical and Health Sciences of New Jersey (AAUP-BHSNJ) is an independent, non-profit organization that represents 1500 faculty at Rutgers/Rowan Universities. These faculty teach the next generation of doctors, nurses, scientists, and health professionals. The Association furthers the interests of faculty by bargaining for improvements in clinical compensation, researcher incentives, work/life balance, and other benefits. We also defend members from discriminatory treatment and provide individual advice on an array of issues. Finally, we advocate for our students, patients, and colleagues in Trenton by advancing legislation which promotes their interests.

Our Vision

We at AAUP-BHSNJ believe in a vision where our universities are models for faculty engagement and provide a high-quality work environment for everyone. Quite simply, if Rutgers and Rowan are to become among the best academic health centers, they must start by becoming national leaders in their treatment of faculty.

“ AAUP-BHSNJ is the professional Bargaining Representative for more than 1,400 faculty members and librarians of the BHSNJ. 


As of July 1, 2013, based on the integration of SOM with Rowan University and the integration of the remaining units of the former UMDNJ with Rutgers University (as per the New 
Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act as of 2012) AAUP-UMDNJ became AAUP-BHSNJ.

 Faculty and Librarians of the former UMDNJ at both Rutgers and Rowan (and those hired into units of the former UMDNJ) are now part of the Biomedical and Health Sciences of New Jersey American Association of University Professors unit, AAUP-BHSNJ.
