CUFA BC represents more than 5,500 faculty members, including professors, academic librarians, lecturers, instructors, and sessionals at five research and doctoral universities in British Columbia: University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, University of Victoria, University of Northern British Columbia, and Royal Roads University. Our mandate is to act as the unified voice of our members on a variety of issues affecting post-secondary education in BC. We promote the value of high-quality post-secondary education; academic freedom; university governance; academic labour relations; and research and teaching to the provincial government and wider public. We produce timely research on a variety of subjects, including university governance, government policies, trends in funding and developments at research universities, and policy analyses.
