WWB GRADUATES MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Last week, students, staff and colleagues had a great time celebrating the graduation of five Water Without Borders students at a wine and cheese reception. To date, sixteen students have graduated from this collaborative program from disciplines spanning engineering, global health, geography, political science, philosophy, English and globalization studies. At this reception, certificates were presented to the following students: Kristin Pouw; Saiffudin Syed, David Devlaeminck, Alejandro Islas Lopez, and Molly Whalen-Browne. Also in attendance were former WWB students and colleagues from McMaster University. Many of the WWB graduates are fulfilling their dream jobs at for example, Waterlution, in academia, and Interpol.
In collaboration with McMaster University, the Water Without Borders (WWB) is a joint graduate program that focuses on addressing global issues related to water, environment and health. Its innovative approach to research and learning, bridges an interactive experience of engaging young professionals in making a difference in the world. This approach follows McMaster’s vision of integrating research and education while engaging with trans-disciplinary scholars. The intent of this program is to give graduate students the tools they need to achieve not only their aspirations of learning, but also to change the world.
