Campus resources for new and prospective faculty

In addition to the long list of campus resources for all faculty, Human Resources (HR) has a list of resources specifically for new employees, including relocation, community, and immigration information.

The Centre for Teaching Excellence (CTE) has programming for new faculty members, and the University asks that faculty undertake specific workshops to ready themselves for teaching Waterloo students.

The New Faculty Planning Committee (CTE, FAUW, and HR) coordinates new faculty orientation days in September and January each year, as well as a new faculty and family dinner event in late September. All new faculty who've started since previous September 1 or couldn't attend an earlier orientation, are invited. If you do not receive an invitation, please email
