Subject: Happy Holidays from President Hamdullahpur
There is no doubt that 2020 has been a challenging year for all of us. Despite the challenges, our community has continued to push forward, adapting to changes and finding new ways to teach, learn and research.
It has been hard, but as we take time this holiday season to pause and reflect on what we have overcome, I remain hopeful. Hopeful in the power of our students, faculty, staff and our vast community of alumni and partners to look out for one another and build back better.
It is within this spirit of hope and goodwill that I send you season’s greetings on behalf of the entire University of Waterloo community.
Please enjoy this special video message as we head into the holidays.
Thank you for being part of the University of Waterloo community. I would like to wish you, your family, friends and colleagues a safe and happy holiday season and a joyful New Year.
