About this Member 

CAUT is the national voice for academic staff at Canadian universities and colleges. Representing more than 66,000 teachers, librarians, researchers, counsellors and other academic professionals and general staff, CAUT is committed to improving the quality and accessibility of post-secondary education in Canada, as well as the working conditions for academic staff and the learning conditions for their students.

CAUT believes that key to that objective is having strong, effective academic staff associations at each campus as well as a powerful national organization that lobbies governments and works closely with coalition partners.

A priority for CAUT is the advancement of academic freedom, and the protection of civil liberties on which academic freedom is based.
