From the report: “This report presents results specific to the University of Waterloo from the “Thriving on Campus: Promoting the acceptance, wellbeing, and academic development of LGBTQ2S+ university students throughout Ontario” survey. We hope the results will help to inform your school’s efforts to promote the inclusion, wellbeing, and success of LGBTQ2S+ students. To give context for your school’s findings, for selected variables, comparisons are made with the entire Ontario sample and/or the group of comparable institutions. We compare your school to other schools with greater than 30,000 students.”

Unconscious Bias Resources
I am African, I am Caribbean Video Series
The University of Waterloo is home to a diverse community of students and includes a multitude of international students. The differences among them are often overlooked and misunderstood. These videos address common misconceptions about students and celebrates the unique experiences of African and Caribbean students.
These videos were developed by a Waterloo staff member, Chérisse Mike, as a voluntary initiative. Financial support was provided by Waterloo International through the University of Waterloo’s pilot project: The Internationalization Fund. Chérisse is from Trinidad and Tobago and all the students in this video are from the African Student Association (UW ASA) and/or the Black Association for Student Expression (UW BASE).
