Western Regional Conference

by Faculty Association | Filed under December 2014.

This fall the Faculty Association hosted a conference which brought together academic staff from Associations at universities and colleges in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, along with representatives from provincial and national organizations, including the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT). The purpose of this conference was to discuss issues concerning post-secondary education and research related to the work of academic staff. The conference also provided an opportunity for Associations to share issues facing their individual institutions and organizations. Topics for this year’s conference, among others, included internationalization, challenges to academic freedom and pension trends.

The Association also hosted a dinner for delegates and was pleased University of Calgary Chancellor, Dr. Robert Thirsk was able to join us and provide a fascinating keynote address.
