2020 President's Virtual Town Hall

The President hosted a special Virtual Town Hall on May 20, 2020 to start a conversation with the Waterloo community on a number of important topics as we continue to move forward during a time of uncertainty. The Town Hall brought more than 1600 students, faculty, staff and more members of the community together for a brief presentation and Q&A session addressing topics ranging from what Fall Term will look like to maintaining the quality of the learning experience, co-op placements and the financial state of the University.

Below you will find a recording of the event beginning with brief remarks from the President, his presentation and an interactive Q&A session with the President and a number of other leaders.

A full list of Q&As from the Virtual Town Hall has been assembled.
