OCUFA Election webpage now live

Dear APUO members,

The following information is sent to you on behalf of OCUFA (Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations).

Sincerely,

APUO Executive Committee

**************************************

Good morning all,

The OCUFA election webpage is now live. You can access it at www.ocufa.on.ca/ontario-election-2014

The page currently includes a “take action” feature, that allows you to send an email to your local candidates and the party leaders urging them to make higher education a priority.

Under the resources tab, there is a copy of the survey that we have circulated to the party leaders and a toolkit for meeting the candidates and hosting an all candidates meeting (both documents are also attached to this email). More resources, including expert analysis videos and analyses of the parties’ platforms will be posted as they become available, so check back often.

We would encourage you to circulate the link to everyone in your association, and to encourage your members to send an email to their local candidates using our “take action” form.

If you have any questions about the election webpage or about OCUFA’s election initiatives, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Best,
Erica

OCUFA – We Teach Ontario

OCUFA’s latest campaign, We Teach Ontario, launched last week. It’s goal is simple: to explain the important connection between teaching and research at Ontario’s universities. In addition to the campaign website featuring video profiles of faculty members, there are many ways to connect with the campaign.
