About Support Waterloo

Joanne Shoveller

Joanne Shoveller, Vice-President, Advancement

Welcome to the Office of Advancement. We hope you will take a few minutes to learn more about Advancement, which is responsible for supporting the University’s academic, research and service goals through fundraising and alumni relations programs. 

Our staff work both inside and outside the campus community to garner support for a wide range of University priorities including research initiatives, facilities and equipment, academic programs, chairs, fellowships, scholarships, and student awards.

Today, the University of Waterloo is recognized as one of the world’s top universities.  Our Strategic Plan defines the next decade where a new kind of boldness and daring will ensure Waterloo emerges as a premier global competitor.  Getting there will take a lot of hard work, but we’re up for the challenge.
