The University of Winnipeg Foundation
A Campus In Transition –
Renewal In Education And In The Community
The University of Winnipeg and its Collegiate is in the process of a major transformation - a transformation in education, and a transformation in the community. Built on a solid foundation of academic excellence, the University is not only exploring new avenues of leadership for our students and researchers, but also striving to be a catalyst for urban renewal.
The University of Winnipeg is an anchor in the west end of downtown Winnipeg that offers the potential to link a dynamic population to a revitalizing city centre. With more than 10,000 students, faculty and staff converging daily on our campus, we are the largest cohort of population in the downtown bringing vitality, diversity and creativity to the area, contributing upwards of $20 million annually in consumer spending to the local economy. Through our role as a partner in the downtown community, we are providing an educated workforce for the new knowledge economy.
The future of The University of Winnipeg campus and our community is bright. The economic impact of new development will be significant and that will lead to new business opportunities and partnerships. So, as we transform this University, we are also helping to reinvent this community, city and province, through both our academic offerings and our new development projects.
Through generous support from alumni, friends, faculty and staff, today, the University and it’s Collegiate are opening their doors even wider in new directions to embrace thousands of students who share a desire to build a future that lives up to our motto Lux et Veritas Floreant – “Let light and truth flourish.”
