A message from Feridun Hamdullahpur, UWaterloo's President and Vice-Chancellor, to students, faculty and staff:
I am excited to welcome you back to the University of Waterloo for 2017. As we all return to campus after the holiday break, we should take a moment to reflect on the significance of this New Year. It is anything but a regular year.
This year we are celebrating Waterloo’s 60 years of innovation: 60 years since our founding, but also what the next 60 years has in store for this institution.
