President's Report


I am pleased to share with you the 2022–2023 President’s Report, which showcases the outstanding accomplishments and progress our university has made in the last year in support of the Laurier Strategy 2019–2024.

The 2022–2023 year was a year of recovery and return to more normal campus activities and operations as we emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns. This year we celebrated the launch of a number of strategic initiatives, including the Indigenous Strategic Plan and the Strategic Plan for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. These plans empower us to pursue tangible goals to enhance our thriving community, ensuring it is a place where everyone is supported, safe, and included.

This has also been a year of change and challenges. Technologies such as generative Artificial Intelligence are disrupting the worlds of academia, research and work in equal measure, and we continue to face the existential threats of climate change and geopolitical conflict. There are also day-to-day challenges in our communities, including the rising cost of living, food insecurity, and the housing crisis, to name a few.

At Laurier, we have full-time faculty, contract teaching faculty, students and staff who are working to find solutions to these challenges, and many others. I am confident that as you read through this report, you will be as inspired as I have been in the ways in which the people at Laurier are dedicated to building a bright and hopeful future.

We have a great responsibility as an institution to develop the next generation of leaders to be future-ready. This means giving them the tools to thoughtfully and ethically approach every opportunity and challenge they meet when they leave Laurier. In reflecting on the last year and the work that has gone on at Laurier, I am confident we are succeeding in this regard.

I am grateful for the many innovative and creative ways our community comes together to build a better world through research, education and community service. My heartfelt thanks to everyone in the Laurier community who supports our work.

Hodgkinson was a recipient of Laurier’s Early Career Researcher Award for 2023, recognizing her work in collaboration with community safety and policing organizations to make public policing more equitable, democratic and accountable. Her research has contributed to reducing pharmacy robberies in British Columbia, shifted crime policy to be more inclusive of homeless and Indigenous populations in Saskatchewan, and addressed violence in high-crime neighbourhoods across the United States and Australia. In 2022 alone she provided commentary for 21 articles and news segments.



Laurier supports Afghan scholars to re-engage with their research

In September 2022, Afghan professors Sediqa Akbari and Rohina Zaffari were able to re-engage with their research thanks to support from the Scholars at Risk Program and their sponsor Dr. Bree Akesson, associate professor in the Faculty of Social Work and Canada Research Chair in Global Adversity and Well-Being. Their research collaboration is an extension of one that began in 2016 when Akesson was invited to co-lead a study of psychosocial well-being in Afghanistan. At that time, Akesson worked with Akbari and Zaffari in Afghanistan, interviewing both men and women for the study. Their award winning research resulted in Kabul University opening its first counseling centre. Both Akbari and Zaffari were forced to flee Afghanistan and now safely live in Canada. They are working with Akesson as part of her Global Adversity and Well-Being Research Group.

Laurier virologist makes world-first discovery with implications for cancer and COVID-19 treatments

In a paper published in the journal Frontiers in Immunology, Associate Professor of Health Sciences and Biology Dr. Stephanie DeWitte-Orr reported the first evidence that a nucleic acid produced by viruses – long double-stranded ribonucleic acid (dsRNA) – can be used to target and shut down the spread of illness in healthy and cancerous cells. Previously, this strategy was only known to be effective for invertebrates – animals without backbones – and plants. DeWitte-Orr is working with industry partners to move her discovery from the laboratory to human use. Within the next year, DeWitte-Orr plans to begin pre-clinical trials, exploring its potential to treat cancerous tumours and respiratory viruses, as well as lower back pain, alongside Laurier Associate Professor Dr. Diane Gregory.

UX students design storage pack to help people experiencing homelessness

With the help of instructor Dr. Stephen Fernandez, third-year students in Laurier’s User Experience Design program created a storage pack designed for individuals experiencing homelessness to hold their belongings, store food and use as a sleeping bag. The bags, called Nurture Packs, were created out of a concept devised in Fernandez’s Maker Lab class, where students learned about the critical making process and how design can encourage a deeper understanding of the issues and challenges people face. During the winter term, the students hosted two well-attended workshops on the Brantford campus for Laurier community members to learn about challenges the unhoused population faces and to learn about constructing Nurture Packs. The group aims to expand the workshops to the Waterloo campus in the 2023–2024 academic year.
