Get involved

Bring your voice to the table by volunteering with FAUW. Whatever your expertise or interests, we'll find a role for you. If you don't see something suitable below, contact Laura McDonald and let us know how you think you can help.

Service for FAUW counts as service to the University on your annual performance review.
