The Office of Advancement builds bridges between the University and partners across the globe to support Waterloo researchers, alumni and students. Guided by the University’s strategic plan and Waterloo at 100 vision, we work together to create bold new futures in which humanity and the planet will thrive.


At the end of April, we celebrated one of our most prominent champions – Chancellor Dominic Barton – who will conclude his tenure on June 30 after six years of leadership. It was a privilege to bring together so many global change makers to recognize Dominic’s contributions to Waterloo.
