Capilano University is a place of collaboration: students, faculty, alumni, partners and donors are interconnected.

Donor Community photo

The communities within the North Shore, Sunshine Coast and Sea-to-Sky corridor have provided extraordinary support to Capilano University students. In 1968, we were created through community demand. For 50 years, CapU has been inspiring students to innovate by providing experiential learning in a challenging, creative and supportive environment.

Capilano University is a place of partnership, with a vibrant campus life creating an atmosphere of intellectual inspiration and adventurous creativity. We are drivers of change, and an integral part of the communities we serve.

Positive change is a multiplier, and our donors participate in student success, building community and connections.
