For over 60 years, with each Founders’ Day celebration, Renison staff, faculty, students, alumni, donors and other community members come together to honour our core values and the work that we do to promote them. We invite you to celebrate Founders’ Day with us. All honorees are invited to wear their medals/honours to the event.

When: Wednesday, May 22, 2024, 7:00pm
Where: The Atrium, Renison University College, 240 Westmount Rd. N., Waterloo
Note: This is a hybrid event; the formal program will be streamed over Zoom for those attending remotely.

We hope you’ll be able to join us to celebrate and connect!

Refreshments and parking will be provided.
