Welcome to EDGE

Thanks for visiting EDGE, the University of Waterloo's new experiential education certificate program. EDGE gives Waterloo students in regular (non-co-operative) programs an opportunity to develop key professional skills, explore their career options, and market themselves to employers.

The EDGE team offers drop-in advising through The Centre (Needles Hall) on Monday afternoons (1:00-4:00PM) and Tuesday mornings (9:00-12:00 PM). To make an appointment outside those hours, contact us at edge@uwaterloo.ca.

Looking for us?

The EDGE team's offices are located in East Campus 1 (EC1). EC1 is located in the northeast corner of campus at the intersection of Columbia Street and Phillip Street. If you need a little more help finding us, our building is circled in red on the map below:

    Community Support Connections – Meals on Wheels and More (CSC) is currently recruiting volunteers to help people live in their own homes through a variety of programs. This month our focus is on recruiting Meals on Wheels volunteers. Our Meals on Wheels volunteers help deliver hot meals to older adults and adults with disabilities during the lunch hour from Monday to Friday. This is a great opportunity for everyone, but especially for anyone who has some free time during the summer months or those who are looking for more experience working with vulnerable populations.
