APSCUF: Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculty
The Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculty (APSCUF) is the union that represents faculty and coaches at KU and across the entire State System. APSCUF-KU acts as the local representative of APSCUF at KU. It is the job of APSCUF to implement the Collective Bargaining Contracts between the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and APSCUF. As part of that responsibility, the Bylaws of the so-called contract committees are approved by APSCUF. Among those contract committees are the University Promotion Committee (UPC), the University Tenure Committee (UTC), the University Sabbatical Committee (USC), and the University Curriculum Committee (UCC).
