Representing over 580 full-time faculty members and professional librarians
50 YEARS STRONG
Since 1965, the Brock University Faculty Association has represented thousands of workers on campus, protecting their rights, fostering a democratic and egalitarian learning atmosphere, and advocating for the best education experience for students and faculty alike.
Understanding the Brock Community
In addition to teaching both undergraduate and graduate students, BUFA members also conduct research and are involved in a wide variety of university and community service activities.

We know what supports teaching, learning, and research at the University, and we know what gets in the way.
A Website Made for Members
On the new BUFA website, we will share some of our knowledge, perceptions and critical analyses of the challenges facing Brock and the University’s responses. We will publish updates on our current contract negotiations. In addition, we will provide our own suggestions for addressing the University’s current difficulties, while maintaining the high academic quality of the education that we provide our students.
