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.

  1. Nov. 30, 2020Policy 14 consultations: Help us secure a better pregnancy & parental leave policy
    It's almost here: Help us get the pregnancy & parental leave policy UW deserves.

    The proposed revised version of Policy 14 – Pregnancy and Parental Leaves (including Adoption) is now posted for consultation with the UW community. The proposed changes would take us from having one of the worst pregnancy and parental leave policies in the province to one of the best.

  2. Nov. 27, 2020Re-allocation of unspent professional expense funds + WFH expense eligibility

    Our 2018 salary settlement with the University included a commitment to re-allocate unused Faculty Professional Expense Reimbursement (FPER) funds. We've reached an agreement with Provost to divide all the FPER money that expired last spring and this spring equally among members and add it to this year’s FPER allowance (for faculty who were FPER-eligible as of May 1, 2020). That will happen on December 4, 2020.

  3. Nov. 13, 2020Special Advisor on Racism and Anti-Racism

    The FAUW Board is pleased to announce that Kathy Hogarth, who is an associate professor of Social Work at Renison University College, will be FAUW’s Special Advisor on Racism and Anti-Racism. Professor Hogarth is a founding member of the Black Faculty Collective and a member of FAUW’s Equity Committee. Her experience in helping organizations guide internal transformation and her research expertise in the areas of racism and equity will be a huge asset to FAUW as we shape our response to the university’s efforts on this subject and reconsider some of how FAUW operates.
