Engineering prof leads relief initiative for Ukraine

Wednesday, June 22, 2022

A grassroots fundraising and awareness initiative is underway on campus to support humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine.

Led by faculty, staff and student volunteers, University for Ukraine (U4U) aims to bring together the University of Waterloo community to show solidarity and provide coordinated relief to war victims.

Logo for University for Ukraine.“I’ve spoken to several students, colleagues and friends who ask how they can help Ukrainians in a meaningful way,” said Professor Serhiy Yarusevych, a Ukrainian-Canadian mechanical and mechatronics engineering professor and U4U co-founder.

“That’s where the idea for U4U began – to provide every person on campus a quick and easy way to make a difference in the lives of Ukrainians shattered by war.”
