Again at the same time, universities in Ontario were trying to meet an increased demand for post secondary education which was anticipated as the first cohort of the post World War II "baby boomers" became old enough to enroll in post secondary education.

From the beginning Renison College planned to be affiliated with the new institution, along with St. Jerome's College (now St. Jerome's University), and antipated United Church (St. Paul's College) and Mennonite (Conrad Greble College) Colleges.

At the last minute, The Evangelical Lutheran Synod backed out of Waterloo College's planned affiliation with the Affiliated Faculties, leading to a flurry of activity which lead to the creation of the University of Waterloo as the degree granting institution and Waterloo Lutheran University (now Wilfred Laurier University as a completely separate denominational university in it's original site.
