Partnering with Wilfrid Laurier University, the University of Waterloo hosted Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and members of our campus communities on Tuesday afternoon. Students had the unique opportunity to interact with Premier Wynne during a series of discussions and Q&A session.
The discussions highlighted the importance of existing community partnerships to ensure that services and supports are accessible on campus. Questions and comments from students focused on increased access to mental health services, the importance of national and international education experience, and improved access to food resources for low-income students.
The Premier’s visit to Waterloo was part of a week long tour focused on student engagement, the importance of establishing an educated workforce and creating opportunities for young people.
