International recruitment, income diversification priorities for uWaterloo

July 6, 2009

In a recent memo sent to University of Waterloo faculty and staff, president David Johnston outlines his priorities for the university in the coming year, which include systematically raising admissions standards in all faculties and boosting enrolment of international and out-of-province students. Johnston states that uWaterloo will strive to sustain annual private giving at $100 million per year, and enhance research income by at least 15% annually over the next 5 years. Also of importance are strategic resource allocation, student housing, and the collegial culture at the university. uWaterloo Daily Bulletin
