We received one nomination and are pleased to announce that Bryan Tolson has been acclaimed as FAUW president for the 2019–2021 term. Congratulations Bryan!
What does the president do?
The president is a visible leader who represents the interests of faculty and works to improve their conditions of employment.
In addition to representing FAUW at the University and in the broader community, the president is charged with the general management and supervision of the association’s affairs and operation. This includes chairing the meetings of the Board of Directors and co-chairing the Faculty Relations Committee.
The president is a champion for academic freedom and collegial governance, and works with the University administration to promote FAUW’s objectives. They also serve on the University Senate and Senate Executive and participate in advocacy at the provincial and national levels through the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA) and the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT).
The president is supported by highly capable staff and board members who can facilitate effective leadership and advise on issues of University governance. The role is challenging, but also immensely personally rewarding.
