Our community came together back in May for a special Virtual Town Hall amid a great deal of uncertainty. We continue to face a near future that is ever-changing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the University of Waterloo community has never stopped planning and acting.

The Fall Term is fast approaching with new and returning students starting classes. You likely have a number of questions from classes, campus access, research, co-op, student supports and more on the minds of you, our students.

To help answer some of those questions, I will be hosting two upcoming Virtual Town Hall events, one for our undergraduate students and one for graduate students. I will be joined by leaders from across our university to listen to your concerns and answer your important questions.

As with our past Town Hall event, this event is an opportunity for me to hear from you. I have had the pleasure to speak with hundreds of students over the last few months and hear their concerns, questions and ideas on a range of topics. I want to hear yours too. I welcome your questions or concerns before the event by pre-registering for the event and also during the live Q&A session.

I truly want these Town Halls to be an opportunity for our entire community to learn through open dialogue. We are moving forward as we look to ensure your needs as students are met given the challenging environment in which we are living. And, I know that we can only truly move forward together.

I look forward to hearing from you, our students and speaking with you soon.
