Welcome to your Faculty Association

The Faculty Association of the University of Waterloo (FAUW) works to ensure academic freedom, fairness, and collegial governance for 1,350 faculty members at Waterloo. We do this by negotiating our working conditions, advocating for member rights, and connecting with faculty members across campus and the country. Join us in our efforts to make Waterloo a better place to work and learn.

  1. Nov. 15, 2021Progress update on teaching faculty policy revisions

    Following receipt of the report of the policy development committee on September 23, the Faculty Relations Committee (FRC) has spent the majority of its meeting time identifying and discussing the major terms of importance in reshaping the policies. This has been a collegial, collaborative, and productive discussion which has resulted in agreement on several major areas.

  2. Oct. 29, 2021Update on Policy 76/77 Revisions

    At the latest Faculty Relations Committee meeting, we and the administration representatives shared our respective visions for teaching-intensive faculty, to see if they are close enough to continue discussions. Based on these statements, the Board has supported continuing discussions at FRC.

    Do you…

    • want to learn more about how FAUW and the University work without a long-term commitment like a term on the Board?
    • like figuring out new procedures and policies?
    • want to help increase transparency within FAUW and shape how members are appointed to University Committees?
