Associated University Presses (AUP) is a publishing company based in the United States, formed and operated as a consortium of several American university presses. AUP was established in 1966, with the first titles published through AUP appearing in 1968. There were five constituent members in the AUP consortium— Bucknell University Press, University of Delaware Press, Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, Lehigh University Press, and Susquehanna University Press. Each member university press maintained its own imprint and editorial control over their published titles, while book production and distribution (both national and international) was the responsibility of AUP.
AUP is a wholly owned trading name of Rosemont Publishing & Printing Corp., a private company established in 1969 and first incorporated in the state of Delaware, later reincorporated in New Jersey.
Over 4000 individual titles were issued by AUP under the imprints of the constituent presses, representing a cross-section of academic and scholarly fields. AUP also acted as a distributor of publications from a number of institutes and organizations, such as the Balch Institute for Ethnic Studies and the Folger Shakespeare Library.
