Information for new and prospective faculty

The Faculty Association of the University of Waterloo (FAUW—rhymes with "now") works to ensure academic freedom, equity, and collegial governance for faculty members at Waterloo. We negotiate and protect your working conditions, and are here to help when you need it.

Everything in the Information for all faculty section of this website, especially our Faculty Guide, is relevant for new faculty but we have a few additional resources for new members and those considering a position at Waterloo.

Starting points

We're working on adding more resources to this section. Let us know what you'd like to see here by emailing laura.mcdonald@uwaterloo.ca.

Considering a position at Waterloo? Prospective faculty are welcome to contact FAUW for advice at any point in the hiring process.
