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.
