Much of FAUW's work is carried out by committees of the Board.
Information on standing committees is available in the Faculty Association of the University of Waterloo (FAUW) constitution, from the FAUW office, or by following the links to the committee webpages where applicable.
Academic Freedom and Tenure Committee (AF&T)
The AF&T committee assists faculty members with:
- problems regarding terms and conditions of employment,
- application of university policy,
- tenure and promotion issues,
- annual performance reviews, and
- pension and benefits issues.
The committee also plays an advisory role in the development and revision of relevant University policies.
Status of Women and Equity Committee (SWEC)
SWEC engages in educational and advocacy activities related to the status of women and with broader equity issues such as those arising from gender, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, disability, religion, age, or gender identity.
Hagey Lecture Committee
The Hagey Lectures are the premier invitational lectures at the University of Waterloo. This distinguished series was established in 1970 to honour the contribution of Dr. J. G.Hagey, one of the founders and first President of the University of Waterloo (1957-1969).
Lecturers fill diverse roles within the University that are distinct from those of research-track faculty. The Lecturers Committee is concerned with the career paths of Lecturers – including terms and conditions of employment, teaching loads and progression. The committee, which has representation from Lecturers of all faculties, assists the FAUW Board on the development and revision of University policies that pertain to Lecturers.
