Get involved

Get to know current students and keep in touch with your peers!

You are an integral part of our community. From mentoring and hiring current students to helping graduates keep in touch, there are lots of ways to stay involved with the Faculty of Environment.

Many ways to engage with our students

Mentor a student, host an Office Hours event, speak to a class or hire a co-op student.

Keep in touch with other alumni and friends

We’d love to have you join us at an event soon to reconnect with our wonderful alumni and friends. If you are a natural connector, consider joining the Class Champions program which supports alumni volunteers to act as class reps; promoting their milestone class reunion, reaching out to former classmates, and if they wish, even planning a special class activity. 

We love hearing about the fantastic things alumni are up to after graduation. We have had many talented alumni share their stories with us for the Waterloo Magazine, alumni e-newsletter, the Alumni Blog and our own alumni profiles and ENVision newsletter.

More ways to connect

Log-in to the e-community to find a job through WaterlooWorks. You can also learn about career management techniques, educational planning and job search methods from an alumni advisor. Book an appointment with an alumni career advisor to advance your career.

Save money and give back with uWaterloo affinity partners. When you sign up for group rates on home, auto or life insurance, the university receives revenue which supports all of our alumni programs, including Waterloo Magazine, the @uwaterloo enewsletter, alumni events and more.

I was happy to share my time chatting with students about preparing for the workforce, as I feel I would have greatly benefited from that opportunity myself when I was an undergrad. I found this experience to be rewarding and welcome future opportunities to be engaged in student-alumni networking initiatives.
