The BCIT Faculty & Staff Association is affiliated with the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT).
Founded in 1951, CAUT is the national voice for academic staff. Today, representing 70,000 teachers, librarians, researchers, general staff and other academic professionals, CAUT is an outspoken defender of academic freedom and works actively in the public interest to improve the quality and accessibility of post-secondary education in Canada. To learn about why the FSA joined CAUT check out this post on our blog.
As members of CAUT we also have access to their Affinity Program.
Find out more on the CAUT website.
As part of our membership with CAUT we are able to appoint FSA staff and members to CAUT committees.
