Welcome to SMUFU

  • A community of lifelong learners, responsible global citizens, and champions of our own success.

The Saint Mary’s University Faculty Union (SMUFU) is a certified trade union under the Nova Scotia Trade Union Act. The Faculty Union was established in 1974 to promote and maintain harmonious relations between the University and its Faculty. In 1989, the University’s Professional Librarians joined SMUFU.


With the fourth wave now in full effect in Canada, the SMUFU Executive is hearing members’ concerns about the health and safety of our campus. This membership message is continued under “About Us, Faculty News”.
