The University of Waterloo is excited to celebrate International Week from September 21 to 27.
International Week is a great opportunity to recognize and promote the value of education and collaboration abroad, and the importance of internationalization on campus. This signature event will showcase internationalization through a variety of programmes, events, collaborations, debates, discussions, and an array of activities for the University of Waterloo community.
Several events and activities have been organized by various departments, academic support units, and student groups across campus. While most activities will be held virtually, a few will be held on campus with social distancing.
Let’s experience the world together. Please join us in celebrating International Week 2020. Events and activities can be found on the International Week events page. Be sure to show us how you’re celebrating by participating and sharing on social media, using the hashtag #IW2020!
