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.

We are looking for new members for our Lecturers Committee and Equity Committee (formerly the Status of Women & Equity Committee).
We know that the continuing vitality of these groups depends on the fresh contributions and enthusiasm that come with new members. Note that service to FAUW counts as service to the University for your annual performance review.

On April 6, 2018, our members voted to change the name of the Status of Women and Equity Committee to “Equity Committee.”
The Equity Committee is concerned with equity issues, in line with the protected grounds of the Ontario’s Human Rights Code. The committee engages in educational and advocacy activities as appropriate and liaises with other related committees of the University, OCUFA, and CAUT.

On April 30, the Theatre of the Arts is booked by an unofficial Laurier club for an event about "multiculturalism, borders, and identity in Canada," featuring two speakers known to espouse anti-immigration views. As FAUW president, I am choosing to show my support for all Waterloo community members by fundraising for organizations that support marginalized groups on campus.

FAUW will be recognizing National Indigenous Peoples Day (June 21) and Indigenous History Month (June) by holding a faculty reading circle on Indigeneity and the University.
Join us June 22, 2:30-4:30 in the Board Room on the second floor of the Grad House. We’ll provide snacks and reading materials – a selection of recent brief public statements about Indigenous initiatives in academe. At the reading circle, we’ll read through them together and discuss how we think they apply to the University of Waterloo.
