We've put together some of the most essential information for faculty and staff, and tried to make it conveniently available here on our departmental website.
We've made a list of the most important policies and procedures for faculty and staff, as well as a list of the most important support contacts across campus.
We also help provide links to information on research funding and information to help new faculty appointments feel at home here in Waterloo.
