The Faculty Association invites nominations for the role of president for the term July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2022. Nominations are due November 13.

About the Faculty Association

FAUW is the official representative of faculty members at the University of Waterloo. We negotiate compensation, terms of employment, and University policies. We advocate for collective rights and provide support to individual members. The principles of academic freedom, collegial governance, and equity are at the core of the Faculty Association's operations.

The role of the president

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 operations. 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, collegial governance, and equity, and works with the University administration to promote FAUW’s objectives.


All voting members of the Faculty Association are eligible to run. 

The Faculty Association is strongly committed to representing the interests and concerns of its diverse constituency and membership. We especially encourage those who would contribute to the diversification of the association’s leadership to run.
