2017 President’s Town Hall

The University of Waterloo’s 2017 President’s Town Hall brought hundreds of students, faculty, staff and community members together both in person and over a live stream. It was an excellent opportunity for President Feridun Hamdullahpur to discuss the successes and milestones from the past year, share his vision for the future and host an open dialogue with the campus community in a lively Q&A session.
