Thanks to you, it's full steam ahead. Powered by philanthropy, we are breaking new ground on the University's new Centre for Childhood Studies in late summer 2022. The Centre is western Canada's only degree-granting, school education.

Paul Dangerfield speaking at an event
“CapU has a long history of transformation and innovation, inspired by imagination and driven by purpose. The new Centre for Childhood Studies is a continuation of this practice and an investment in one of our greatest strengths. Thanks to your generous support, the Centre will enable CapU to reach higher and have an even greater impact on early childhood care and education.”
Paul Dangerfield, President, Capilano University

In March 2021, we set an ambitious goal to reach out to our community and raise $5 million in support of the this new and urgently needed integrated Centre of research, learning and childcare.

The response from you and others in our community was inspiring and enabled us to begin work on this important capital project.
