Announcements: Special QUFA Message from President Elizabeth Hanson

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome back! As we settle into a new year, I want to share with you an information sheet QUFA has prepared on the topic of negotiating our relationships, as faculty and librarians, with our students. This social terrain has changed dramatically since many of us were students. Recently, some of these changes have been captured in new legislative requirements for universities in the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

We are circulating this special bulletin because I think it’s vital that we are all aware of what is expected of us by the University, by our colleagues, by students and by society at large. It is important for our professional credibility and for our job security that we can negotiate our professorial and mentoring roles successfully.

I welcome any responses or questions by return email.


Elizabeth Hanson
QUFA President
