Campus resources for new and prospective faculty

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 a new faculty orientation day the first week of September, and a new faculty and family dinner event later in September each year. All new faculty who've started since the previous September 1 are invited. If you do not receive an invitation, please email
