How do you best communicate the intricacies of a language? It's not an easy question to answer, but on Saturday, November 17, the Confucius Institute (CI) in Waterloo, housed at Renison University College, took on the challenge.
It is with sadness, but with profound gratitude, that Renison University College relays the news that our last living founder, The Venerable Harvey Southcott, passed away on August 6, 2018 at the age of 93.
Elli Li, an Accounting and Finanical Management student who is also studying the Japanese language at Renison, has won first place in the Intermediate Category at the 29th Canada National Japanese Speech Contest.
Renison Professor Christine Logel, along with three other awardees, is the recipient of this year’s Equity and Inclusivity Award, presented by the Equity Committee of the University of Waterloo’s Faculty Association. Rather than present only one award, the committee felt that it needed to break with tradition and select multiple winners given the number and quality of nominees.
