Waterloo alumni make life better for us all.
The 2019 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 green building and sustainable development, an educator on medical cannabis, an expert in information security analysis and the first female deputy governor of the Bank of Canada.
Working tirelessly to advance important causes, this year’s award recipients also run charities, advocate for wildlife and support Waterloo and its students. One alumnus’s story of social justice was even made into a musical.
Visit the Alumni Awards page to read about these incredible alumni.
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.
