The Engineering Society mourns the profound loss of a remarkable individual, former Waterloo Undergraduate Student Association (WUSA) President Stephanie Ye-Mowe. Stephanie’s passing has left a void in our community, and her absence will be deeply felt throughout Waterloo.
Stephanie was a beacon of passion and empathy at Waterloo, dedicating herself tirelessly to improving the lives of her fellow students. Her leadership and commitment were exemplified in her advocacy on crucial issues such as housing, food security, and accessibility. She championed these causes with unwavering determination, leaving an unforgettable mark on our university.
We are committed to ensuring that the Waterloo community remains a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment for all. The feelings of isolation and alienation she experienced are deeply concerning. It is our shared responsibility to ensure that no student encounters such distrust or hostility.
The Engineering Society stands united in honouring Stephanie’s memory. We are committed to fighting for her and the causes she held dear. We genuinely believe in the importance of what Stephanie fought for, particularly in ensuring that the voices of students, especially student leaders, are valued and heard. Stephanie’s enduring spirit will inspire us as we work towards a more trusting and supportive environment for all students.
In these difficult times, we want our students to know we are here to support them. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need assistance or someone to talk to. The Engineering Society is always available to answer questions, address concerns, and guide our students toward the required resources.
Counselling and wellness services and support resources are available to help you navigate this challenging period: https://linktr.ee/UWEngSocMental_Health.
