Together we will shape the future

Our community

Our community of visionary alumni, donors, volunteers and partners has fuelled our remarkable success story. Now, as we enter a new era of our history, your support matters more than ever. Together, we can develop innovative solutions to the biggest challenges facing the world.


Every day, we see headlines about natural disasters, political unrest, conflict and other difficult circumstances that disrupt lives around the world. For many, those disruptions impede their education. On August 1, 2023, the University of Waterloo embarked on an appeal to help students whose education has been interrupted.

We have all just experienced something traumatic. Please know that support is available. If needed, please communicate with your supervisor or professor about temporary adjustments to work or studies. This news presents you resources available for support.
