Endowment fund

The Applied Health Sciences Endowment Fund (AHSEF) was established in the Fall of 1994 as a student-based financial support system created to enhance the academic environment of all undergraduates in the Faculty.

Each undergraduate student registered in the Faculty of Health contributes to the fund, as a donation to the University of Waterloo through AHSEF. The money is a voluntary contribution used to support student-initiated projects with an academic and student life focus, and it is the hope of AHSEF that all undergraduate students in the Faculty of Health view the fund as a significant contribution to help themselves and their fellow classmates receive the best possible education.

Equity, diversity and inclusion

The School of Public Health Sciences celebrates diversity and embraces programs that engage communities from local to global. We challenge the social and structural factors that undermine health, including structural bias, social inequities, and racism and we value a healthy workplace that fosters well-being for members of our community.

Liasion librarians

Jackie Stapleton, Liaison Librarian, Kinesiology and Health Sciences provides library research and teaching support for Kinesiology and Health Sciences students, staff and faculty. Liaison librarians provide guidance on finding and/or citing information for course assignments, papers and presentations. Specialized support for conducting advanced literature searches for theses, review papers and article publications is also available.

Student associations

The Association of Health Students Undergraduate Members (AHSUM) is the student association for all undergraduate students in the Faculty and supports many aspects of the Waterloo experience. AHSUM holds social events throughout the terms and offers a number of services for students, which include an exam bank, clothing orders, and resource support.

In addition to the University's Graduate Student Association, graduate students can connect with classmates via the Master of Public Health Students' Association (MPHSA), or School of Public Health and Health Systems Graduate Students' Association (SPHHS GSA).
