Our role in decision making
The University makes extensive use of committees in decision-making.
Since 1975, the University of Waterloo Staff Association (UWSA) has increasingly earned its place and succeeded in securing staff membership on virtually all of these important University of Waterloo committees. The UWSA Board of Directors either works directly on these committees or appoints a staff member to act on their behalf. See the links below for a complete description of what each type of committee does.
