Occasional updates, comments, and reflections from President Feridun Hamdullahpur

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).

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. 

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.

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.
