Behind the Scenes of the Student Leadership Program

Emma, our coop student, holding Stundent Leadership Program Booklets

Hi, my name is Emma Schroeder and I’ve completed my 3B term of Kinesiology, with a minor in rehabilitation. I’m the Student Leadership Program Assistant here at the Student Success Office. As a co-op student, I feel very fortunate to help run the Student Leadership Program. Although I am working in the background to ensure that workshops run smoothly, I still receive a lot of positive feedback from students. This is rewarding to me because I am able to make a difference in students’ professional development and help my peers reach their full potential.

The co-op process at UWaterloo has been one of the most defining — and grueling — aspects of my university experience.

Passion, Design, Development
