FPSE members care deeply about equality, social justice, and the health and well-being of all. We work on both timely campaigns and long-standing issues to help support our members and the communities we serve to create a more fair and democratic world.
From lobbying governments to raising public awareness, FPSE actively works to advance the social and economic interests of our members. We campaign for public funding and policies to ensure our institutions are accessible and of the highest quality. We defend the freedom of our members to teach and conduct research unrestricted by special interests. We fight for fair working conditions, job security, and compensation and benefits that foster quality teaching and innovative research.
FPSE is a strong and outspoken advocate of human rights and equality, for ourselves and for society at large. We hold in the highest regard the fundamental principle espoused by J.S. Woodsworth: “What we desire for ourselves, we wish for all.”
