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.

This annual trip is one of our major internationalization efforts throughout the year. It's a symbol of Waterloo's global leadership in redefining university education as highly innovative, entrepreneurial, and connected to industry.

We made sure to connect with many of our closest friends and stakeholders in the region, while forming new alliances that will grant exciting opportunities to our students and faculty.

Some highlights:

Finally: our entire #UWaterlooAsia delegation team is incredibly grateful for all the alumni and organizers who put in countless hours to ensure this ambitious, complex, international effort was smooth and productive. Thank you!
