Convocation is a special time for our graduates to celebrate their achievements with family and friends.
University of Waterloo's Fall Convocation ceremony for the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences and the Faculty of Science begins at 10 a.m. in the Physical Activities Complex (PAC).
Paul Eagles will become Distinguished Professor Emeritus. He is recognized as Canada’s foremost expert on parks and protected-area management. Through his distinguished research and long-standing commitment to the Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies, he has profoundly influenced professional practice, research in the area of park and tourism management, and positively impacted the quality of life and well-being of people and wildlife worldwide.
Anita Myers will become Distinguished Professor Emeritus. She was instrumental in developing both gerontology and evaluation programs in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences. She received the Contribution to Gerontology award by the Canadian Association for Gerontology, for her research on promoting safe mobility in older adults. For her scholarship, mentoring and service in health-program evaluation she received the Canadian Evaluation Society’s award for Contribution to Evaluation in Canada. She has led 15 teams of Waterloo students to the National Evaluation Case Competition finals, and lead her teams to victory six times.
