Welcome to the Nipissing University Faculty Association (NUFA) website. We represent 180 full-time faculty and approximately 200 part-time Members per term.
We are organized into two bargaining units, the Full-time Academic Staff Bargaining Unit (FASBU) and the Contract Academic Staff Bargaining Unit (CASBU) which consists of part-time faculty teaching both on-campus and online and teaching in Indigenous Education Programs, ABQ courses, as Clinical Instructors, Practical Instructors, and Course Facilitators. We negotiate separate collective agreements but share a common finance and grievance system.
