AVP-I Request Form

We are in the midst of a global pandemic, and our ability to travel internationally is curtailed. Nevertheless, internationalization continues to be critical. And members of the University of Waterloo community are still connecting with others around the world through formal conferences, workshops and other kinds of virtual meetings, as well as through informal online discussions and conversations.

Given this, Ian Rowlands, the University of Waterloo’s Associate Vice-President, International (AVP-I), would welcome the opportunity to speak at your upcoming virtual session, workshop, public lecture, or general event. He can bring a welcoming message to your guests on behalf of the University as a whole, provide opening remarks, or deliver a more detailed set of messages (which we would co-create with you). These can be live (at, potentially, any time of the day or night) or pre-recorded.

Please use the form below to request the AVP-I to be involved in your virtual event. The more advance notice you can provide, the better. After receiving your request, we will reach out to you for more information, to discuss it further with you, and to provide you with a response as promptly as possible.
