Our offices are located at 316 West 12th Street, Austin, Texas 78701

The Texas Faculty Association is a non-profit organization that formed in 1985 to protect the rights of higher education faculty and support staff.

It is dedicated to academic freedom, collegiality across all faculty ranks, faculty participation in governance, and continued improvement of teaching, scholarship and creativity in every college, university and postsecondary institution in Texas.

Affiliated with the Texas State Teachers Association and the National Education Association, TFA has the resources and skills to assist college and university employees whenever problems arise.

In addition to a strong, collective voice in the legislature, TFA offers its members something other faculty organizations can't: a three-way member protection program that includes up to $1,000,000 of liability coverage.

TFA also offers group buying power for financial protection, investments and discounts on numerous products and services, such as vision and health care, prescriptions, hotels and recreational activities.
