In recent years, the Faculty of Science has experienced significant growth in its enrolment (students, faculty) and research capacity, which has created new challenges. As always, the Faculty of Science wants to remain an important and strong leader within the University of Ottawa and the country.

If there’s one thing Jesse Lesniowski learned after surviving a brutal car crash in high school, it’s that advocating for yourself is crucial. Because of the injuries he sustained, it took Jesse a few more years than expected to graduate high school and complete his undergraduate degree in environmental science at uOttawa. “But that’s okay,” he says. “I went at my own pace, I learned to fight for what I needed in order to succeed and I made room in my life for the things that make me happy.”
