Health transcends borders, spans generations and impacts lives.

In the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences, we are committed to finding new and innovative ways to tackle local and global health challenges. From preventing injury and illness to protecting and promoting health and well-being, our researchers have a long history of working together to improve quality of life for individuals and communities around the world.

The Faculty of Applied Health Sciences’ Strategic Plan outlines the Faculty’s priorities and goals, provides a framework for decision-making and expresses our vision for the future of health research and education in the coming years.

It works in tandem with the University of Waterloo’s Strategic Plan and guides our direction so that we can discover innovative solutions to today’s complex local and global health problems.
