Academic departments included all those listed as course owners within the academic calendar, including Dean’s Offices, Co-operative Education and Career Action, and Graduate Studies. Academic departments hosted primarily through the Affiliated and Federated Institutions of Waterloo were excluded based on the boundary for this report. This is different than how Waterloo typically identifies and lists academic departments, but is most appropriately aligned with the credits for STARS.
