CapU celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2018, a year-long commemoration of the University's past, present and future.
The following year, we opened our newest location, CapU Lonsdale, a new learning hub located in the heart of North Vancouver's Shipyards District.
The University has also added vital new programs, including bachelor's degrees in Psychology and Science, with two more STEM degrees on the way, in Environment and Society and Clean Technology.
CapU continues to thrive under Paul's leadership, with construction well underway on the Centre for Childhood Studies and the University's first on-campus student housing.
Undeterred by the global pandemic, CapU continues to grow and accumulate partnerships with essential people, groups and institutions on the North Shore and beyond.
Looking to the future, the priorities for CapU are simple: a commitment to Truth and Reconciliation, innovation, collaboration, transparency and, most importantly, the health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff.
Academically, we focus on the importance of imagination, community and a distinct university experience.
