University of Waterloo
2019 Gold Recipient
Excellence, Innovation and Wellness®
This spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship infuses every aspect of life at Waterloo – from teaching and learning to the workplace culture. Waterloo employees are creative-thinkers and problem-solvers who play a central role in the success of the University. Waterloo’s journey to excellence began in 2014 when the Library integrated the Excellence, Innovation and Wellness® (EIW) Standard at the Bronze level. It has since committed to the integration of the EIW Standard across the entire University.
“The University of Waterloo strives to continuously reach higher and achieve more. This is at the heart of our innovation legacy and it is in our DNA. Our entire institution is honoured to have achieved Gold-level certification and we are thankful for Excellence Canada’s ongoing efforts to recognize organizations that are dedicated to excellence, innovation and wellness.”
