History

History is necessarily a subjective retelling of events. Certain facts are indisputable, but the ordering of those facts into a story is inevitably a personal reflection. Rather than try to generate an official, dry telling of the story of COFAS, this page is made available to COFAS participants, past and present, who would like to tell the story they way they saw it.

COFAS is fortunate that the first person to take up this task was Gordon Unger, former General Secretary of the Association of Academic Staff of the University of Alberta, who was there from the beginning. 

On the left side of the screen there is a link to the History of COFAS entitled "A COFAS Chronicle".  Please use this link to read up on our history.
