The NFA advocates for quality education for the common good of our communities by promoting dialogue, and effective policies and procedures based on these core principles:
• Advocacy and action for faculty and staff as workers in the service of the public good; defense of academic freedom in all its manifestations, including the American institution of tenure rights; and ensuring academic rigor and educational quality on behalf of faculty, students and the community through shared governance of the universities and colleges.
• Access, inclusion and diversity for students, faculty and staff, and the administration they are governed by. All are valued as a reflection of our communities.
• Affordability and funding that emphasize access to the citizens of Nevada pursuing higher education. We advocate for the funding to support an educational infrastructure that will diversify Nevada’s economy.
• Academic achievement, exemplified in both quantitative and qualitative measures, and outcomes for individual students as well as the community they call home.
The NFA represents all eight institutions in the Nevada System of Higher Education, advocating on behalf of faculty and professional staff, and on behalf of more than 100,000 students who call Nevada home. Click the links below to find local NFA chapters or faculty and staff pages.
