Holiday Greetings from the President

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.

The University of Waterloo Visits Hong Kong

Hong Kong Alumni Dinner Crowd

It was a few short weeks ago that a delegation from the University of Waterloo visited Hong Kong to broaden Waterloo’s ties to one of the most vibrant economies and communities in the world. Hong Kong is home to the most Waterloo alumni in the world, outside of Canada, making it an incredibly special place to visit and explore. Our roots have traveled far, shaping our future beyond the borders of Canada.

National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

national day of remembrance and action on violence against women

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.
