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.

    We've learned a lot from six decades of advising—and being—faculty members at Waterloo. We'll soon be sharing a lot of that insight with you on our website, and we'll need to move some things around to make room.

    If something isn't where you expected it to be, try doing a site-specific search by clicking the "this site" button when you open the search box.
