The Academic Workers Union (AWU) represents the College Professors of Northwest Community College (NWCC), is a member of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE Local 2409), and belongs to the Federation of Post-Secondary Educators of BC (FPSE Local 11).
The AWU represents over 50 professionals located in northwest BC including Smithers, Terrace and Prince Rupert.
"Offering these courses not only allows students who live in the northwest to live at home while they are gaining a university degree, it attracts and keeps qualified, educated people in our communities."
The AWU would like to hear from you - the students - about the importance of post secondary education. Send us an email describing why post secondary education is important to you and your community (minimum 300 words), and you could win free tuition to a NWCC university course! Also, please visit www.openthedoors.ca for more contests and incredible student prizes (such as free rent for a year!).
