Faculty for Palestine (F4P) formed in spring 2008 as a committee of the Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid (CAIA) in Toronto. The F4P network has grown to include over 600 faculty of all ranks (tenured, contract, emeritus, independent researchers, retired, visiting scholars) from over 40 universities and 15 colleges across Canada. We are also an active partner in the global BDS movement. From the beginning, Faculty for Palestine was formed in solidarity with, and endorses the, Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israeli (PACBI).
F4P organizes primarily in the following areas:
- the campaign for Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel, including the academic boycott and campus divestment
- the right to education under occupation and apartheid, and building ties with Palestinian colleagues, students and staff
- freedom of expression and the right to organize for BDS and Palestinian solidarity, and against Israeli apartheid
