Defending the Citadel: Confronting Corporate Management and
Corruption in an Illinois Community College, a Personal Narrative
A personal narrative of the groundbreaking organizing and activism
by AAUP faculty at a community college in Illinois.
From AAUP Website, Timeline of the First 100 Years:
1967--In a development of which the national AAUP is initially
unaware, faculty members at Belleville Area College (now
Southwestern Illinois College) vote to designate their chapter as
their exclusive representative in bargaining, making it the first
AAUP collective bargaining chapter.
