The Confederation of University Faculty Associations of British Columbia (CUFA BC) represents 4,600 professors, lecturers, instructors, professional librarians and other academic staff at British Columbia's five research universities. Our goal is a system of publicly-funded post-secondary education that is of high-quality and broadly accessible. We believe that anyone who can benefit from post-secondary education should be able to try and attain that education regardless of their economic or social circumstance.
