The Faculty of Arts acknowledges that we are on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg, and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our actions toward reconciliation take place through our research, teaching, learning, and community events, with guidance from the University’s Indigenous Initiatives Office.
The Global Engagement Seminar (GES) will be holding a virtual Summit that will consist of a panel discussion from our Jarislowsky Fellows as well as an exhibiton of student projects focused on the Pandemic.
You can register as well as find the schedule of events here.
If you're looking for a sneak peek of some expertise brought to us by Jarislowsky Fellow Denise Balkissoon (Executive Editor of Chatelaine) you can listen to an interview between her and writer Emma Donoghue as a podcast here.
Here is a video featuring some past and present GES students talking about the upcoming Summit.
We hope you are able to register and join us at the Global Engagement 2021 Summit: Pandemic for lively discussion and innovative student ideas.
