The University of Waterloo is one of the most exciting academic institutions in the world. As Vice-President, Academic and Provost, I am honoured to be part of this team.
I work closely with the President and Vice-Chancellor to deliver academic and administrative excellence across the entire institution, in large part by leading and supporting our excellent team of deans, faculty members, and staff. I serve as chief academic and budget officer, and carry responsibility for day-to-day operation of the university.
In everything we do, our office is committed to the principles of communication, teamwork, and providing excellent service to our colleagues on and off campus.
Send us your feedback about this site - what works for you and where you need more information – and thank you for visiting.

Last Spring, the Board of Governors approved the University’s 2023/24 operating budget. At the time, we committed to providing an extraordinary Fall operating budget update because we knew that it was going to be a challenging financial year. Now that we have some critical pieces of information, I have provided an update to Senate and the Board of Governors, and can provide an update to our community.
The University of Waterloo continuously demonstrates our tight integration with society through our core mission commitments to Academics and Research, and our key differentiators of work-integrated learning, innovation, application, and entrepreneurship.
The senior leadership team at the University is committed to keeping you informed of progress being made on the actions we are implementing following the hate-motivated attack at Hagey Hall.
