Crucial AAUP Election

CFA’S affiliate, the American Association of University Professors, holds its national election this spring, including elections for the four national officers: President, 1st Vice-President, 2nd Vice-President, and Secretary-Treasurer. The outcome of the election will determine the direction the AAUP takes in its work protecting academic freedom and the quality of education we offer our students.


Counselor Faculty and Coaches Handbooks now on the web

Up-to-date handbooks from CFA for counselor and coach faculty members are now on the CFA web site.

The CFA Counselor Faculty Handbook and the CFA Coaches’ Handbook each explain how the collective bargaining agreement applies to counselors and coaches, respectively, including discussions of your rights and responsibilities.


Faculty Rights Tip of the Week—Article 19: Disciplinary Action Procedures

This weekly CFA Headlines feature offers a brief “Faculty Rights Tip” or short information piece about the faculty contract.


Article 19 of our Collective Bargaining Agreement covers Disciplinary Action Procedures. If you ever receive a notice of pending disciplinary action from your campus administration it’s important to know that timelines move very quickly. 


Online Ed: Access to what and for whom?

Along with the rush to online classes in higher ed, there is a proliferation of online publications reporting on and discussing how it’s going.

CFA President Lillian Taiz took the opportunity in one of these to challenge the online world to make a deeper analysis of its efforts in an article on the Evolllution magazine web site, which is dedicated to “illuminating the lifelong learning movement.”
