INDEV grads take on the world

Thursday, June 13, 2013

Lucy Hinton at the podiumSt. Paul’s University College wishes to congratulate the 31 International Development (INDEV) students who received their degrees from the University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Environment this week. A particular highlight was a valedictory address given by International Development student Lucy Hinton (pictured at right), and a special congratulations goes to Nafisa Kassam who received the Departmental Award for Distinguished Academic Achievement.

A number of INDEV graduates have already secured jobs in Canada and around the world, from Right to Play in northern Ontario and the Ministry of Agriculture’s Research and Innovation Branch in Guelph, to Oxfam Quebec in Vietnam, World Vision in Ethiopia, and the Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute in India.

The International Development program is offered by the Faculty of Environment’s School of Environment, Enterprise and Development, in partnership with St Paul’s University College. St. Paul’s offers fellowships to offset INDEV student costs and provides a common living and learning environment for their last academic term before heading overseas for their eight-month placement. St. Paul’s also manages the INDEV field placement program, matching students to local development organizations in Africa, Asia and Latin America, in partnership with the World University Service of Canada.
