Welcome to the SBFA Website

The SB Faculty Association is a voluntary membership organization of University of California, Santa Barbara, faculty, which provides an alternative voice to faculty outside the regular channels of the Academic Senate and the Administration. Now reaffiliated with the Council of University of California Faculty Associations (CUCFA), SBFA works with CUCFA on its advocacy work done on behalf of UC Senate faculty by all UC Faculty Associations.

SBFA works to

  • Protect salaries, pensions, and heath care
  • Support excellence in teaching and research
  • Promote transparency in university finances
  • Defend academic freedom … and much more!
