Connected to the world

Internationalization is woven into many elements at Waterloo. With a goal of becoming one of the most internationalized universities in Canada, diversity and global connections are encouraged and celebrated.

Waterloo’s culture of embracing international perspectives and experiences attracts some of the world’s most talented students, staff, and faculty. Global connections encompass academic, research, and industry partnerships, international learning through work placements, exchanges, field programs, and co-operative education, as well as a vast network of alumni around the world.

    We are aware that the recent diplomatic tensions between India and Canada have caused concern among many of our Indian students, faculty, staff and anyone with academic connections to India. We understand that these international matters can create a sense of uncertainty and apprehension, especially for those who are far from home.

  2. Sep. 14, 2023Statement from Associate Vice-President, International, Dr. Ian Rowlands, on disasters in Morocco and Libya

    Last week, an earthquake hit Morocco, and earlier this week, floods devastated Libya. Close to 10,000 people have reportedly been killed and hundreds of thousands have had their livelihoods and homes destroyed in an instant. 

    On behalf of the University of Waterloo, I express my sadness at the loss of many lives and the catastrophic impacts for so many people following these natural disasters in North Africa.  I send my condolences to the families and communities devastated by these events.
