Building Our Community with UWaterloo's first ever Community Impact Report

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.

Volunteer Profile: Yanish Jutton

This story is part of the #UWCommunity National Volunteer week series, profiling University of Waterloo members who give their time and talent by volunteering in our community.

Yanish Jutton loves to help people solve problems.

A current University of Waterloo undergraduate student who recently made the switch from Systems Design Engineering to Knowledge Integration, Yanish has discovered that he’s especially passionate about different forms of learning and leadership, and regularly volunteers his time and knowledge in order to help people and teams grow:

“Volunteering also helps me develop personally because I find out so much more about what I do like and what I don’t like.”

Stratford campus is building connections to our community

Each year over 31,000 students attend the University of Waterloo and call Waterloo Region their home.
