Funded by private donations, the WCGS supports research into all aspects of the German-speaking world, and are committed to publicly-oriented scholarship.

    The Waterloo Centre for German Studies is happy to announce that the search for a new assistant is over!

    Misty Matthews-Roper will be taking over for Lori Straus as our new administrative assistant. 

    Misty's interest in German Studies started back in her high school years and led to her 2009 graduation from the Trent University German Studies program. In 2010 she completed a certificate in teaching English as a Second Language at George Brown College. She then taught English in China before moving to teach English in Dortmund for two years.
