Thomas Waugh was one of the first people hired to teach film studies at Concordia.

He has remained a pillar of Concordia's Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema as well as a key person in the establishment and continued flourishing of the university's Interdisciplinary Studies in Sexuality program. He has supervised dozens of graduate students over the years, and been a mentor for hundreds of students enrolled in many programs in addition to Film Studies.

Waugh inaugurated and has maintained the HIV/AIDS lecture series that has been an important touchstone for Concordia since 1993, bringing in international speakers from a wide range of fields, from Queer Theory, to Health Sciences, to Media studies.
