ABOUT US

Founded in 1968, Olds College Faculty Association (OCFA) was incorporated under theSocieties Act in 1972 with 38 charter members. In 1978, when the College became an autonomous, board-governed institution, the Association's role expanded to include collective bargaining and participation in College governance.

MISSION

Olds College Faculty Association is empowered to act as a professional association on behalf of its membership. Recognizing its professional responsibility, the Association is committed to active involvement in the organizational behavior and development of Olds College.

PHILOSOPHY

Because Faculty serve as a critical link with industry regarding training needs, employer expectations, market developments, and employment opportunities, the Association has the responsibility to influence change in College curricula, policy, and activity.

MOTTO

Proud Professional Performance captures the pride we have in the contributions of Faculty to the development of Olds College; recognizes the nature of the Association and the inherent obligation and responsibility of its members; and reflects the orientation that underpins the educational endeavors of Academic Staff Members.
