Name of creator
TUCFA is the academic staff association and bargaining unit for the University of Calgary faculty members. It succeeded the Association of Academic Staff at the University of Alberta, Calgary (AASUAC) following the University's autonomy in 1966. The Association was incorporated under "The Universities Amendment Act", 1981, having existed as a society under the Societies Act before that. TUCFA's mandate is: to promote the independence and freedom of teaching, thought and research within the University; to foster academic community among Association members; to promote joint interests and welfare of academic staff associations through CAFA (Confederation of Alberta Faculty Associations) and CAUT (Canadian Association of University Teachers); and to collaborate with other bodies on the provincial, national and international level whose interests are similar.
