UWaterloo Coffee Chats

What is a coffee chat?

Coffee chats are monthly opportunities for UWaterloo faculty and staff to connect, network, share and listen, all while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea. They are informal gatherings for faculty and staff to engage in professional development, participate in a dialogue about best practices within the field of advising and learn about the different services and resources available on campus. These events are hosted by the Community of Advisors and the Student Success Office. 

When do coffee chats take place?

Each event begins at 8:30 a.m., with presentations/roundtables taking place between 8:45 - 9:45 a.m.

Who's invited?

All UWaterloo faculty and staff are invited, but topics will be geared toward those in academic advising roles. Registration is not required and you are welcome to attend any sessions that interest you.

If you are not a part of our mailing list sign up today!
