Capilano University joins Universities Canada
Today, Capilano University becomes a member of Universities Canada (UC). During its fall membership meeting today, Universities Canada’s members approved Capilano University’s application, making CapU the 96th member of the national association.
“We are pleased and proud to join our colleagues across the country as a member of Universities Canada,” said Paul Dangerfield, president of Capilano University. “As an innovative, growing university on the west coast, we look forward to the engagement, collaboration and learning opportunities offered by belonging to this exceptional Canadian university community.”
Gaining membership in Universities Canada is in large part due to the hard work and tireless effort of the CapU community, including the Board of Governors, Senate, administrators, faculty and staff who participated in the membership application process.
As “the voice of Canada’s universities,” Universities Canada’s activities include advocating for higher education, providing data on higher education trends, sharing information on higher education, managing corporate scholarships, promoting Canadian universities and administering international programs. UC's current priorities are: international mobility; reconciliation; equity, diversity and inclusion; mental health; institutional autonomy; and international research.
Moving forward, we will look for opportunities to add our voice and play a greater role in the national higher education conversation facilitated by UC.
