Six students at the peak of their co-op game

2015 UWaterloo Co-op Students of the Year

Each year, UWaterloo celebrates one student from each faculty for outstanding achievement in co-operative education. To be considered for one of the prestigious awards, a co-op student must go above and beyond their employers’ expectations, be involved with their community, maintain a high academic standing and contribute positively to the co-op program. Congratulations to this year's winners!

Not your average TA job

Roshan, a third-year Environment and Business student is working as a teaching assistant at the Esperanza Project for his spring co-op term. The title is a little lacking, however, because Roshan is doing much more than just teaching.

The Esperanza Project is a non-profit, volunteer organization based out of the small town of Cabrera, Dominican Republic. They provide supplementary education and extra-curricular programming that encourages growth, both academically and socially.

A sustainable leader

At age 26, Jillian Rodak has already made her mark in the sustainability world. So much so that Corporate Knights magazine has named Jillian one of this year’s Canadian top 30 young professionals under 30.

Corporate Knights magazine, through a panel of judges, recognizes 30 young entrepreneurs and activists under the age of 30 that they foresee being the leaders of sustainable development.

Jillian, a Masters of Environment and Business (MEB) student, is more than deserving of this achievement. She has helped top brands use technology to improve their corporate social responsibility programs.
