Waterloo alumni keep some impressive company.
The 2018 Alumni Awards honour proud graduates whose passion, creativity and courage are transforming the world. Join us as we celebrate remarkable alumni, including a leader in hospital patient safety, a pioneer in the study of black holes, a champion of mathematics education and a team of entrepreneurs who are helping families save on their weekly grocery bills.
Working tirelessly to advance important causes, this year’s award recipients also contribute to charities, advocate for social justice, and create opportunities to support Waterloo and its students. To inspire us with her message, one alumnus even climbed Mount Kilimanjaro.
Visit the Alumni Awards page to read about these incredible alumni and many others.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
