Meet Laura:

I manage FAUW's communications, events, membership records, and IT. I also provide support to the Lecturers Committee and am on FAUW's Indigenization Working Group.

I have experience in magazine editing, website and social media management, and musical theatre production. When I'm not at work, I'm generally reading, rock climbing, canoe tripping, hiking, lounging in a hammock, or some combination of these. You can follow me on Twitter @inhabitings.


To submit a guest post for the FAUW blog, email me a brief pitch.

To share a University event or initiative with faculty members via our monthly e-newsletter or social media, email me a link and a brief description. Note that this will only reach faculty members represented by FAUW, and that we do not send dedicated emails on behalf of University departments.

Meet Dina:

I’m a lecturer with Statistics and Actuarial Science, and currently director of the International Exchange program in the Faculty of Mathematics. I am also part of the undergraduate student academic advising team in my department. The roles that I take on have given me the opportunity to interact with students in various ways and have exposed me to some of their life experiences. Through training and practice I have been able to adapt my focus towards how best to help them and guide them in their concerns.

My roles have also allowed me to interact with faculty and other advisors across campus. In attending a variety of campus-wide seminars, training sessions, committee meetings, and conferences I have been able to gain a better idea of the perspective that faculty and other advisors bring to the table when it comes to their careers and how to best to support our student body.

I hope to actively bring these perspectives to my time in FAUW and look forward to learning more.

In my day-to-day life I keep busy by caring for my dog, Nala, staying active, and serving in my community. Having lived in a handful of countries in Africa and toured several parts of the United States, I hope to take the next year or so to widen my travel adventures into Europe.
