Emily Carr faculty pres sends letter of support to Capilano faculty

Letter of support (verbatim): Dear Brent, Rae, and all colleagues at Capilano Faculty Association,

On behalf of the Emily Carr Faculty Association, I am writing to voice our support for the courageous and principled job action that your faculty members are taking. The issues that have led to this impasse--namely, the need to ensure a democratic and collegial teaching and learning community, as well as the university administration's lack of commitment to academic freedom, job security, and regularization--matter to all of us.

We understand that you are standing up to defend the quality of education both for Capilano students and faculty, as well as for post-secondary education across BC. As such, we are very grateful for your integrity and commitment.

In solidarity,

Rita Wong, President
Emily Carr Faculty Association
