Welcome to your Faculty Association
FAUW is an independent advocate for faculty at the University of Waterloo. As the official representative of faculty members, we:
- negotiate compensation and terms of employment,
- help develop university policies,
- advocate for collective rights and academic freedom,
- support individual members, and
- foster collegiality across the campus community.
