Greetings from Capilano University!

Thank you for pausing on this page to learn more about our leadership and direction for CapU in our 2019/20 academic year. We respectfully acknowledge that our campuses are located on the territories of the Lil'wat, Musqueam, Sechelt (shíshálh), Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh) and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. If you haven’t yet connected with us, I invite you to come visit our North Vancouver, Lower Lonsdale (opening in Fall 2019) or ḵálax̱-ay Sunshine Coast campuses. We take pride in being a regional university, with a footprint that extends from the Lower Mainland to Sechelt to the Sea-to-Sky corridor.

CapU offers a second-to-none learning experience and campus communities that are confident, unified, creative, enduring and luminous where students can thrive in a dynamic environment of academics, performing arts, athletics, innovative technology, health, education, business, motion picture arts, tourism and community development.

Many of our students and faculty are recognized, locally and internationally, for their exceptional achievements. Our graduates are prepared and inspired to make a difference in the world. Our history demonstrates a dedication to a very high standard of academic and hands-on learning through outstanding learning and teaching experiences.

Innovation is infused in our approach to instruction and applying relevant learning to the opportunities at large in the world. Together, we are committed to the success of our students and alumni by supporting their career readiness and good citizenship.

However you choose to connect with us, may your experience of Capilano University inspire you in the pursuits of lifelong learning and contributing to your community.

O Siem; I raise my hands to you.
