Celebrating National Philanthropy Day

As we mark National Philanthropy Day for the fifth year, I’d like to personally thank everyone who supports the University of Waterloo and the Affiliated and Federated Institutions of Waterloo through charitable giving and volunteer efforts.

Growing Waterloo's profile in Asia

#UWaterloo Delegation Team

For the last week and a bit, I've had the honour of leading our annual president's delegation to East Asia. This year our travels took us to Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China, to maintain and build partnerships that will serve Waterloo well for years to come.

Lest We Forget - Remembrance Day 2016

Text saying On November 11, We Remember in a field of poppies

Seventy five years ago next month, in December 1941, a thousand Canadians stood in defence of a small city off the China coast. More than half would suffer death or injury, and those who survived would go on only to capture, and often to torture. 

#UWaterlooAsia 2016

Feridun Hamdullahpur with Peter Mathieson, president and vice-chancellor of the University of Hong Kong

It's been great spending time in East Asia with our incredible alumni and partners for the past week. We'll continue our efforts building institutional partnerships and connecting with University of Waterloo community members in this region until November 13, when our annual visit to this beautiful part of the world comes to an end.
