Although he graduated over 40 years ago, former board of governor member and proud alumnus Bill Watson (BA ’76) continues to carry the innovative Waterloo spirit. Earlier this year, Watson contacted Waterloo’s Co-operative Education and Career Action (CECA) about an idea his law firm, Baker Mckenzie, was working on. Watson wanted to create Whitespace Legal Collab – a hub that uses multidisciplinary collaboration to address complex business issues.
“I’m very pleased to announce that Ross Johnston will assume the role of Executive Director, Co-operative Education, effective June 19,” writes Associate Provost, Co-operative and Experiential Education Peggy Jarvie in a memo circulated last week.
With a work term spent in Kenya at an HIV/AIDS clinic and an orphanage, Arts student Rachel Zammit’s co-op experience was anything but ordinary.
Zammit worked in two different HIV/AIDS clinics, one dedicated to mothers and their babies, and another for the general public. She also took on roles in the community, including work at an early childhood development program teaching three to seven-year-olds math, science and personal hygiene. She also taught English.
