The University of Waterloo is more than a world-class institution for innovation and learning. We are proud to contribute to the success of our community and we have a rich history of giving back to make our community a better place.
Explore UWaterloo's community involvement
Every fall, University of Waterloo is a proud participant of the annual United Way workplace campaign. Proceeds from our campaign stay in our community, helping the United Way Kitchener-Waterloo & Area.
Waterloo's public lectures are an entertaining and informative way to learn about emerging ideas and research. Some of the guests we have had in the past include Jack Dorsey, Alexis Ohanian, and Chris Hadfield.
How we can help
The past year has been unprecedented with the global pandemic having changed the way we interact with one another, and specifically for Community Relations, how we engage with the community. We have moved to virtual events as a way to connect with the community and continue to provide innovative and collaborative opportunities to engage with the University of Waterloo.
If you are a campus event planner, we've updated our campus event planners resources to include virtual event insights and resources.
