As our current Strategic Plan enters its final year, I am pleased to announce that the University of Waterloo is launching a process to develop a new plan for the period of 2020-2025.
Over the next 12 months we will examine our achievements on the current plan, develop transition strategies to ensure that we stay on course with our achievements so far and begin to prepare for the new plan. Two foundational stages of the development process will be taking place. These stages are:
- Nov. 30, 2017
December 6th is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Canada. This year will mark the 28th anniversary of the tragic events that took place in 1989 at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal.
- Jan. 3, 2018
Welcome back to campus!
I hope you had a wonderful and restful holiday break with family and friends.
- Dec. 18, 2017
With the holidays approaching and the conclusion of our 60th Anniversary, I’m delighted to send you season’s greetings on behalf of the entire University of Waterloo community.

Twenty-eight years ago the post-secondary education community and all of Canada changed forever. On what was supposed to be a normal day at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal in 1989 was instead replaced with unimaginable tragedy as 14 young female students were taken from us in an evil attack of gender-based violence.
