New Faculty Orientation

AUFA participates in the New Faculty Orientation organized by Human Resources every summer. We also hold a new faculty workshop every August specifically devoted to issues covered by the Collective Agreement. This hour-long workshop covers key topics such as:

• workload
• leaves of all kinds (sabbatical, parental, compassionate, sick, doctoral study, etc.)
• applying for renewal, tenure and promotion
• grievance and dispute resolution
• discipline
• professional development, travel and internal research funds

All faculty, new or not, are welcome to attend. All members are also invited to a wine-and-cheese gathering at the University Club immediately after the workshop to welcome our new faculty.
