Report on AAUP Vaccination Policy Survey

August 5, 2021


The responses to our survey suggest that members of the AAUP bargaining unit overwhelmingly support a mandatory vaccine policy for the faculty and staff in AAUP with University-authorized exemptions. Ninety-four percent supported a mandatory vaccination policy with authorized (e.g., medical) exceptions and 92% support frequent testing of unvaccinated.  Less than 5% indicated that they might ask for an exemption or did not want to answer that question. The 3 question survey had 1,335 full or partial answers. There were a handful of instances of possible duplicate responses (based on duplicate IP addresses), so the analysis  was conducted on 1,245 responses from unique IP addresses. Please follow the link to the full analysis.

Thank you.
