Policy development: Faculty Appointments (76) and Tenure and Promotion (77)

We are currently working to revise the University's policies on Faculty Appointments (Policy 76) and Tenure and Promotion of Faculty Members (Policy 77) to create new teaching-stream faculty appointments.

FAUW’s fundamental purpose is to promote fairness for and equitable treatment of our members, to defend academic freedom, and to ensure that we all work in an environment that supports excellent research and teaching. It is the collective responsibility of all of us in the Association to fight for fair working conditions and good jobs for all of our members.

Creating better jobs for teaching-intensive faculty will benefit everyone at Waterloo. We want to see the University do better at valuing and recognizing the teaching that we all do, and creating high quality teaching appointments is part of that shift. An updated teaching-stream policy is also required for Waterloo to stay competitive among its peer institutions—many of which have had teaching-intensive professorial appointments for years.
