Who We Are

We are the exclusive collective bargaining representative for the California State University faculty, including tenure-track faculty, lecturers, librarians, counselors, and coaches. Join us to protect and improve one of the greatest university systems in the world to advocate for the CSU at the California State Legislature and in all public arenas.

We protect academic freedom, faculty rights, safe workplaces, higher education, student learning, and fight for racial and social justice. CFA members organize and take action to ensure CSU and CFA goals’ toward the promotion of racially and socially just practices.

Through our members’ work over the last several years, we negotiated statewide and campus MOUs concerning COVID-19 to safeguard faculty health, safety, and rights; bargained expansion of protections in our contract for lecturers, coaches, and counselors; advocated for improved state funding for the CSU which preserved courses, class size, and faculty jobs; and successfully lobbied the state employee pension fund (CalPERS) to remove investments from the two main companies running child migrant detention centers.
