The Algoma University Faculty Association (AUFA), formerly the Algoma University College Faculty Association (AUCFA) is a member of the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA). AUFA's original constitution was adopted on November 20, 1967; it has been revised in 2000, 2003, and 2005.
As a member organization of the OCUFA, AUFA seeks to maintain and enhance the quality of higher education in Ontario, and to advance the professional and economic interests of teachers, researchers, and librarians in Ontario universities.
With the OCUFA, the AUFA works to ensure that the views of its members are communicated to government policy makers, the public, and those concerned with the quality and accessibility of post-secondary education.
The current AUFA President is Professor Noni Boyle (Fine Arts); past presidents have included Dr. Richard J. Bazillion (History), Dr. Lloyd Bannerman (Philosophy), and Dr. Cheryl Reed-Elder (Psychology), Dr. Istvan Imre (Biology), and Dr. Linda Burnett (English).
Fonds comprises records that document the faculty association's activities as the bargaining unit for Algoma University College's full-time and sessional faculty members. Fonds comprises minutes of AUCFA meetings, correspondence and memoranda predominantly with AUCFA members, AUC administration, the OCUFA, and the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT). Also includes records regarding the Royal Commission of Inquiry on Algoma University College (1976-1977) and other studies and reports on AUC and university issues generally.
