Welcome to your Faculty Association
The Faculty Association of the University of Waterloo (FAUW) works to ensure academic freedom, equity, and collegial governance for faculty members at Waterloo. We negotiate and protect your working conditions, and are here to help when you need it.

The Faculty Association received multiple nominations from members in Arts, Engineering, and Science in response to its call for new directors of the Board. Elections will commence on March 21 for directors representing these three Faculties.
The Association received one nomination each from members in Environment and Mathematics, so these positions are acclaimed. We received no nominations from members in Applied Health Sciences, so this position will be vacant until the Board can fill it by appointment.
