The Faculty Association of the University of Waterloo, Academic Freedom & Tenure Committee presents four workshops annually to help faculty through key transitions in their academic career.
We encourage you to attend, regardless where you are on your career track…it’s never too early or too late!
You can download the 2017 workshop slides below.
For tenure-track faculty
The probationary contract period and applying for tenure can be intimidating.
These workshops are designed to provide critical information on how to succeed and to ensure you know where and how to get your questions answered. The aim is also to provide clarity on expectations of your peers and of university policy during this process.
The workshops complement the "Documenting Your Teaching for Tenure & Promotion" workshop presented by the Centre for Teaching Excellence.

For tenured faculty
Tenured faculty who are considering applying for promotion in 2017 or in the near future are encouraged to attend. This workshop will walk you through the promotion process step by step and will provide explanations of formal policy as well as practical tips to help you succeed. Clarifying what is expected from peers and from the university in the promotion process will also be addressed.
