Federation of Students: University of waterloo
Feds undertakes activities both on and off campus to serve, empower and represent students. Feds operates eight commercial services, 12 student-run services, encompasses nearly 300 clubs, supports student societies, and oversees Orientation Week, Welcome Week and a number of other special events held on campus.
Feds lobbies the government on behalf of undergraduates and ensures positive relationships between students and the municipality. Feds is a founding of the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance (OUSA), as well as the federal collective the Undergraduates of the Canadian Research-Intensive Universities (UCRU). Feds’ day-to-day operations are run by an elected Executive team comprised of a President and three Vice Presidents: VP Operations and Finance, VP Internal, and VP Education. They, in turn, are held accountable by Students' Council, comprised of elected representatives from each Faculty and College at the University of Waterloo, and an elected Board of Directors.
Heforshe: UW Faculty of science
President Hamdullahpur accepted an invitation from the UN Women’s HeForShe campaign for the University of Waterloo to participate in their IMPACT 10x10x10 framework alongside governments, leading universities, and global businesses.
In May 2015, as part of this framework, we committed to:
Boost female student participation in STEM outreach experiences and academic careers to build the pipeline of future female leaders in traditionally male dominated disciplines
Enhance female faculty representation to improve the campus environment today and drive towards parity in the future
Attract and advance female leaders into senior academic and administrative university positions
