About Us

The University of Winnipeg is a dynamic campus in transition. We are becoming the downtown hub that connects people from diverse cultures and nurtures global citizens. We offer high-quality undergraduate and graduate programs including several that are unique in Western Canada, for example, a Bachelor of Arts in Human Rights and Global Studies, and a Master’s degree in Aboriginal Governance. Our graduates value their educational experience, and in the 2012 Annual Maclean's ranking of Canadian Universities, UWinnipeg was once again in 4th place in Canada among primarily undergraduate universities for overall reputation. The Maclean's survey comes on the heels of the Globe & Mail Canadian University Report 2013, released on October 23, 2012, which ranked UWinnipeg among Canada's best for diversity, environmental commitment, small class sizes and healthy food on campus. The new Richardson College for the Environment & Science Complex now accommodates over 2,000 students, faculty, staff and visitors daily. As one of the most innovative Science Complexes in Canada, our renowned professors, graduate and undergraduate students are researching and studying the most challenging issues we face: climate change, isotope productions and cancer tests, and pollutants in our air and lakes. This year, we have started construction on the most important recreational facility ever built for Winnipeg's inner city community. The new United Health & RecPlex is going to add academic opportunities on campus, offer more choices for UWinnipeg students and athletes, and create a safe place for neighborhood children to get involved in sports. We offer small class sizes and a dedicated team of professors, sessional instructors and support staff. Whether you are a new or returning student, I want to personally welcome you to The University of Winnipeg. Lloyd Axworthy, President and Vice-Chancellor.
