The values of our community and the University are intertwined, and these connections allow our students, faculty and staff to give back in meaningful ways. Whether it is in the form of transformational research leading to the betterment of society or supporting charitable and nonprofit enterprises by volunteering their time and resources, members of the University take pride in helping to build our vibrant community.
As we continue to expand our impact and reach both locally and globally, the University recognizes the need for a strong relationship with our community to reach our goals. This morning, University of Waterloo President and Vice Chancellor, Feridun Hamdullahpur, hosted a number of elected officials and community leaders at the Waterloo Region Museum to launch the University’s first ever Community Impact Report, Building Our Community.
Known for our academic excellence across Canada and the world, the University of Waterloo continues to place Waterloo Region on the global map, however, a key component of this success is dependent on ability to learn, build and grow with our local community. This report outlines our connections, partnerships, and impact on the community, helping us to define our collaborative future.
Our University and our community are inextricably linked, and we are stronger and more successful together. We know that our joint efforts make Waterloo region a great place to live, work and play, and invite you to learn more about the dynamic role we play in our community.
