Posts for the Topic outreach

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

UWaterloo Warriors “Team-Up” with local schools

Positive messages from positive role models. This is the key idea around which the Team-Up program, sponsored in part by the Education Credit Union, is based. Team-Up brings Varsity Student-Athletes to schools where they speak to classes or teams about topics such as goal setting, having positive role models and being a team player. With over 52 schools, both elementary and secondary, and over 5,500 individuals participating last year in the Kitchener-Waterloo area, this year’s Team-Up school outreach program looks to reach even more students with their positive message that focuses around the Six Keys to Success.

Waterloo West Neighbourhood Fest 2014

From how to calm crying toddlers to delivering more than 26 programs in 9 locations, over 120 University of Waterloo students had the opportunity to get hands on experience delivering programing designed for the community. On Saturday November 22, second year Recreation and Leisure students hosted Waterloo West Neighbourhood Fest in partnerships with the Stork Family YMCA, and John M Harper Branch of the Waterloo Public Library.  Activities ran from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and saw around 200 participants from the local community. 

20th Annual Science Open House sparks science discovery

On Saturday, October 25th, the University of Waterloo opened its doors for their Science Open House.   This year marked the 20th anniversary of this annual event and we welcomed over 1,500 visitors from our community for a day of engaging science discovery.

Aspiring young scientists spent the day exploring nearly 100 different hands-on activities centred on the different scientific disciplines including biology, chemistry, earth sciences, physics, pharmacy and optometry.

Community Building

With campus locations across the region from our School of Pharmacy in downtown Kitchener, our School of Architecture in Cambridge, and our Digital Media campus in Stratford, the University of Waterloo brings the energy and diversity of our students to these areas having a significant impact on our regional community. 

Building a Vibrant and Thriving City

Culture is a vital part of a thriving economy and impacts the quality of life of a city's residents. The City of Waterloo recently sought to create a 10-year culture plan, which was approved by Council nearly a year ago.  The City's plan is the culmination of a broad public consultation process and now depicts a collective vision for culture in our community.   

The ultimate goal is to position Waterloo an even more vibrant and creative city in which to live, work, learn and play. Students, faculty and staff at the University of Waterloo contributed to the development of the Culture Plan and look forward to working with the City to implement many of the recommendations.

UWaterloo Takes Back the Night

Wearing black and gold, the group of UWaterloo students, faculty and staff stood out among the over 300 participants at the 31st annual Take Back the Night march and rally.  Numerous departments and groups on campus, such as the Federation of Student’s Women’s Centre, brought out members to this year’s event. Take Back the Night addresses the rights of women, children, and trans*people to be safe, without violence, regardless of age, creed, location, numbers, or attire.  

Life long learning

As part of our very nature the University of Waterloo is committed to spurring a sense of curiosity, provoking thought leadership and fostering lifelong learning.  As a leading academic institution it is Waterloo’s role to ensure that these values expand well beyond the walls of our campus and into our communities.

Come in the Doors Open

Each year as part of Doors Open Waterloo Region we invite our community to join us for a special look inside our buildings and to learn more about what goes on at the University of Waterloo.  At our locations this year Waterloo offers the public the opportunity to step inside our doors and learn about the human eye, see medicinal plants, and explore the last industrial plant built on the Grand River. 

Be sure to visit Waterloo’s School of Architecture, School of Optometry, and School of Pharmacy as we open our doors to the public on Saturday September 20, 2014.
