Occasional updates, comments, and reflections from President Feridun Hamdullahpur

Giving Tuesday in Honour of Our 60th Anniversary

Giving Tuesday

We are now in the swing of the holiday season and over the past week, four of the busiest shopping days of the year took place between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. A lot of shopping took place around the world, but it’s also an important time of year to give back.

President's Town Hall: Successes, Growth and Dialogue

President's Town Hall with attendees listening to Feridun Hamdullahpur's speech.

One of the most important events on my schedule every year is the President’s Town Hall. This is my opportunity to talk about some of the successes we’ve enjoyed over the past year, the important projects we are working on, my vision for the future and have an open dialogue with the campus community.

Remembrance Day Message

On Remembrance Day we come together as a nation to honour the Canadian men and women who fought and died in the name of peace and freedom.

We pause at the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day, of the eleventh month to reflect on the memory of our brave servicemen and women. Not only reflect on their sacrifices, but what each of them stood for: their selflessness in the service of others.

Canadian soldiers not only protect fellow Canadians during times of war. They defend the vulnerable around the world during peacekeeping missions. We are forever indebted to their service.

Why We Should Never Stop Talking About Equity

The University of Waterloo has made real strides in gender equity through our HeForShe IMPACT 10x10x10 commitments, but we cannot settle on the gains we’ve already made. We need to keep talking, thinking and taking action together.
