SFU Policies

SFU has a wide range of policies in place to govern academic matters, administrative affairs and terms of employment. The complete list of policies is available here.

For most SFUFA-related matters, however, it is the series titled “Academic Policies” which is most important. Here you will find information governing all aspects of academic staff employment at SFU, from processes for initial appointment through retirement, from departmental decision-making to the details of economic benefits.

A number of these policies have in whole or in part been incorporated into or modified by the Collective Agreement. Anywhere there is a discrepancy between the policy and the Agreement, it is the Agreement that takes precedence.
