We Cannot Shy Away From Opposing Views

University campuses across Canada, and around the world, are being confronted with the need to be a place that maintains its dedication to freedom of expression and open debate, while balancing the need to support those individuals and community groups who feel they are under attack. Our community is currently going through this situation right now and we cannot shy away from it.

Stay Connected with Your Warrior Community

As exams come to an end, I want to congratulate our students, faculty and staff members on another outstanding term. I also want to thank our students for their hard work. You continue to go above and beyond what is expected in and out of the classroom.

Join Me in Supporting the Humboldt Broncos - #JerseysForHumboldt

As countless people across Canada and around the world continue to mourn the tragedy in Saskatchewan last Friday evening involving the Humboldt Broncos hockey team, I too grieve with them. The devastating accident has had a profound impact on the hockey community, sports community, Canada and the world.

Professional Development is a Necessity for Innovation

staff conference and professional development

This past week I was privileged to help kick off the 11th annual Waterloo Staff Conference here at the University of Waterloo. The energy I saw in my colleagues was contagious.

It wasn’t just the fact that the group was getting ready to hear from outstanding speakers and take part in engaging workshops, it was because we were networking and learning together. And, professional development and better workplace integration are key drivers of a thriving, innovative environment.
