St. Paul’s GreenHouse, a live-in social innovation community, has been selected as a finalist for the Ashoka U-Cordes Innovation Award, identifying GreenHouse's work as ‘one of the premiere models of social innovation in higher education.’

The award recognizes high impact and highly replicable education innovations, and the winner will be decided at an awards ceremony at the Ashoka U Exchange at the University of Maryland in Washington, DC in February.

The Ashoka U Exchange is the world’s largest convening for social entrepreneurship in higher education with a global network of 150 colleges and universities. "We’re looking forward to being part of this event and learning from our colleagues around the world on ways we can advance social entrepreneurship at the University of Waterloo,” said Tania Del Matto, Director of St. Paul’s GreenHouse.
