From providing engaging social media for non-profits to developing an IOS app, University of Waterloo’s Co-op Students of the Year made a difference in 2021.

Co-operative and Experiential Education (CEE) Associate Provost Norah McRae and director of Co-operative Education Ross Johnston presented the 2021 Co-op Students of the Year and Problem Lab award winners on March 21, 2022, in a virtual ceremony.

This year, six women were recognized for their exemplary performance amid another pandemic year of in-person, hybrid, and remote work.

“To announce six outstanding women as our students of the year during a month when International Women’s Day falls is particularly special,” says McRae.

Each year, one student from each faculty at Waterloo is presented with a Co-op Student of the Year award for exceptional contributions to their employers.

“It goes without saying the quality of our co-op program us thanks to our fantastic students,” says Johnston.

The winners of the 2021 awards are as follows:
