Representatives and committees

FAUW ensures that faculty members’ voices are well represented at all levels of the University and within FAUW itself, coordinating more than 100 faculty seats on internal and external committees and working groups.

You are welcome to contact any of your representatives with questions or suggestions.

How we represent you

Our work is governed by our elected Board of Directors with input from the Council of Representatives, and much of our work is carried out by committee members.

Board members meet with the University administration biweekly through the Faculty Relations Committee (FRC). We also manage, with the University, faculty member appointments to dozens of other committees that shape faculty working conditions.

All Board, Council, and committee positions are filled by voting members of FAUW.

Keeping you informed

The FAUW Board and committees report to members about our activities by:

  • delivering reports and answering questions at our fall and winter general meetings
  • sending monthly updates about key developments to all units through the Council of Representatives
  • posting publicly throughout the year on our website, blog (see our Board meeting summaries in particular), and social media (Twitter and Facebook)
  • sharing highlights and opportunities to participate in our email newsletter
