Student Life


St. Jerome's University HeForShe Committee, in conjunction with Sexuality, Marriage, and Family Studies, presents a FREE public lecture by Dr. Jean Kilbourne
Featuring student research on parenting, diverse romantic relationships, consent and dementia, incest and adultery in Medieval society, LGBTQ+, and more!

A five-day, for-credit, residential, immersive, local experiential learning opportunity that engages students deeply in social justice issues important to the Kitchener-Waterloo community, Encounter•KW introduces students to community members and organizations that are working to address often marginalized issues.


Through exploring, learning, and serving locally, Encounter•KW provides participants with the opportunity to connect with the community on a deeper level, giving students an opportunity to begin to understand their role in addressing issues relevant to the Kitchener-Waterloo area.
