Occasional updates, comments, and reflections from President Feridun Hamdullahpur

The New Economy Will Require More Than Technical Skills

Teamwork and communications are essential skills

“We discovered a quiet crisis,” writes Dave McKay, President and CEO of RBC and University of Waterloo alumnus.

Haunting words from an industry leader.

Being a Catalyst for Sustainable Development Means Taking Action

SDSN Launch Event

This week the University of Waterloo officially opened the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) of Canada hosted at the University by the Faculty of Environment.

It is an honour to have the SDSN here at Waterloo, in partnership with the Waterloo Global Science Initiative (WGSI), and with the launch comes an increased capacity to explore and find solutions to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Encouraging women to choose science, technology, engineering and math

Far from a simple concept of fairness, addressing gender equality is integral to the future of our nation, its people and our economic wellbeing.

Hacking the Future at Waterloo

Waterloo is a magnet for innovators and disruptors.

So, it is no surprise that tomorrow our University will welcome a diverse group of business leaders to our Waterloo Innovation Summit.

Fall welcome

The Fall is one of my favourite times to be on campus. The season is marked by the enthusiasm of new students, as well as renewed comradery for those returning and refreshed commitment from faculty and staff.

2016 Year in Review

2016 has been a great year for UWaterloo, thanks to all the hard work of so many students, staff, faculty, partners and friends. 

I can't wait to start the new year with you, in celebration of Waterloo's 60 years of innovation.

Until then, here's a recap of some great experiences and events we had in 2016.

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.

Following the #UWaterlooAsia Delegation trip!
