Information session

Serving on the FAUW Board of Directors or one of our committees is an opportunity for you to represent your colleagues and contribute to the collegial governance of the University. It is a great way to learn about the functioning of the University, and to build your service portfolio in a way that is both relevant to your performance review and personally interesting and rewarding.

This session for faculty members currently on a definite-term contract will help you to:

  • interpret your current contract and what you're entitled to as a definite-term faculty member,
  • prepare to negotiate your next contract, and
  • understand continuing appointments.

Faculty members who started at Waterloo after (or who missed) the new faculty events in August and September are invited to an information session on January 29, 2021. Representatives from the Centre for Teaching Excellence and the Faculty Association will be there to share information and answer questions about starting your career at UW.

FAUW runs a series of workshops each year to help faculty through key transitions in their academic career. This session is for faculty recently hired for their first probationary term and will cover the requirements and some advice for probationary renewal.

These sessions are designed to provide critical information on how to succeed and to ensure you know where and how to get your questions answered. The aim is also to provide clarity on the expectations of your peers and of university policy.
