Lecturers fill diverse roles within the University that are distinct from those of research-track faculty and thus have distinct needs. The Lecturers Committee assists the FAUW Board by providing input on matters pertaining to all aspects of the working conditions of lecturers, and by communicating issues raised by lecturers to the Board.
The committee, which has representation from Lecturers of all faculties, is particularly concerned with the career paths of Lecturers – including terms and conditions of employment, teaching loads and progression.
The Lecturers Committee hosted town hall meetings in December 2016. The committee provided context on the relationship of the Lecturers Committee to the FAUW Board, the issues raised via a 2014 meeting of lecturers and 2015 Lecturers Survey, and the current activities of the committee. The floor was then opened for discussion.
The committee administered a survey in November 2015 to explore lecturers' experiences with regard to terms of appointment, teaching loads, non-teaching terms, service roles, and more.
