Waterloo and the World

Students are powerful change agents. Through lenses of intercultural effectiveness, competency development and advancing the SDGs; students who are Indigenous, have disability needs or face barriers of low-income will undertake transformational International Work-Integrated Learning (iWIL), student exchanges, Global Experience Certificate (GEC) activities, and embedded field course experiences via established and new international exchanges, partner social enterprises, private companies and not-for-profits placements located in 20+ non-traditional destinations. In keeping with Waterloo’s Strategic Plan, Waterloo and the World will enable future-ready talent from these targeted groups to realize their fullest potential with outcomes of this innovative programming shared with the larger community.
