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 UWaterloo. We negotiate and protect your working conditions, and are here to help when you need it.

FAUW extends our sympathy to the family of Colten Boushie, to his fellow Red Pheasant First Nation community members, and to the broader Indigenous community at this difficult time. We are grateful to live and work on the traditional territory of the Neutral (Attawandaron), Anishnaabe, and Haudenosaunee peoples. We value and respect our Indigenous members, colleagues, students, and neighbours. We have a lot of work to do to act on that value and respect, and we are committed to doing it.

Join President Hamdullahpur, FAUW President Bryan Tolson, University Secretary Karen Jack, and FAUW Vice President Shannon Dea as they consider the differences between freedom of expression and academic freedom, relevant University of Waterloo policies, and the implications for faculty teaching, research and service.
