The University of Waterloo has received a grant that aims to further enhance the work term experience for all Waterloo co-op students, including those with disabilities.
The one-year, Enabling Change Projectfunding enables the Waterloo Co-op AccessAbility Team (WatCAT) to develop a support model to ensure students with disabilities can engage in the University’s robust co-operative education program.
The University of Waterloo has been ranked the number one university in Canada for employer partnerships—and number four in the world—according to the 2018 Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Graduate Employability Rankings.
This puts Waterloo in the top 1 percent of universities in the world for employer partnerships.
Although he graduated over 40 years ago, former board of governor member and proud alumnus Bill Watson (BA ’76) continues to carry the innovative Waterloo spirit. Earlier this year, Watson contacted Waterloo’s Co-operative Education and Career Action (CECA) about an idea his law firm, Baker Mckenzie, was working on. Watson wanted to create Whitespace Legal Collab – a hub that uses multidisciplinary collaboration to address complex business issues.
