About the Staff Association

The University of Waterloo Staff Association (UWSA) is an independent, non-profit, democratic organization providing staff with a voice on university committees to influence decisions pertaining to working conditions, benefits, compensation, and more.

The UWSA is run by a team of three ongoing employees plus the president (on a one-year secondment), president-elect, and past president. A Board of Directors elected by and from the UWSA membership provides oversight.
