Since the first part of 2022, more than 1,000 people have participated in preliminary consultations as part of the Waterloo at 100 visioning exercise. 

Thank you for your participation, feedback and ideas. Your input has helped us form the foundation of a discussion paper that will be used to stimulate more engagement through consultations this fall.

The paper synthesizes suggestions and ideas that came forward, organized into three forecasts for our journey to 2057: Graduates, Knowledge, and Campus.
