Update for the UWaterloo community

We’re writing today to let you know about plans for winter term 2022. As vaccination levels continue to rise, we are confident that we can prepare for a winter term that will allow for a return to in-person academic experiences.

Though none of us can predict exactly how the pandemic will change over the months to January, we know that vaccination is the key to getting to a post-pandemic experience of teaching and learning.
