University of Winnipeg

The University of Winnipeg received its charter in 1967, but our roots are deep, with more than 140 years of nurturing global citizens. Located on Treaty One land, in the Métis homeland, we are anchored in one of the most ethnically diverse communities in Canada. We proudly reflect this reality as one of the top universities in the country for Indigenous participation. Whether science students are engaged in undergraduate research, business students are exploring social enterprise, arts students are engaged in human rights and ending homelessness on our streets, or education students are tutoring incarcerated young offenders – we remain a place that grows leaders and encourages them to make an impact. Our faculty researchers and scholars are tackling relevant and contemporary issues like climate change, Indigenous health, food security, community development, poverty, and refugee settlement.
