From public lectures to signature celebrations such as Canada Day, we're honoured to invite our community to the University of Waterloo.

Kicking off the 2015 #UWUnitedWay campaign

Tuesday, September 29 signaled the launch of the University of Waterloo’s 2015 United Way workplace campaign. An annual tradition, students, staff and faculty supported the initiative by wearing red and decorating their workplaces to celebrate the wellbeing of our community. 

Dining in the Dark

Imagine waking every morning without being able to see the sunrise. Taking a class but needing someone else to write your notes because you can’t see as far as the board.  Slowly losing your sight and knowing that in your country help is not available for you.

Over 600 million people are vision impaired because they do not receive proper eye care.  Optometry Giving Sight works to change all of that. It is a Global Initiative that seeks to provide diagnosis, care, and treatment for those with sight problems in developing countries.  On September 26, 2014, the University of Waterloo School of Optometry and Vision Science held its 3rd annual “Dining in the Dark” fundraiser as a part of this global initiative.
