The Hagey Lectures
Waterloo's premier invitational public lecture series since 1970, the Hagey Lectures – named after the university's first president – are co-sponsored by the Faculty Association and the University of Waterloo.
The annual lectures are intended to challenge, stimulate and enrich not only the faculty, staff and students of the University, but all members of this community.

In the 2019 Hagey Lecture, Professor John Borrows blends Anishinaabe stories, language, theories and practices with analysis of Canadian law to illustrate the possibilities and limits of the seven grandmother/grandfather teachings: love, truth, bravery, humility, wisdom, honesty and respect.
John Borrows is Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Law at the University of Victoria.
