In 1938, Manitoba College and Wesley College joined forces to become United College, founded on the ideal that faith and politics can intersect to create lasting social change. Today, UWinnipeg's vibrant urban campus — located on Treaty No. 1 land, in the heart of the Métis homeland — is home to approximately 14,000 students, faculty, staff, and researchers. With an interdisciplinary approach and undergraduate studies in arts, business and economics, education, kinesiology and applied health, and sciences — along with graduate programs; an English language program; Professional, Applied Continuing Education; and The Collegiate high school — UWinnipeg is a place that attracts and nurtures a rich diversity of learners who are ready to make a real world impact. The University of Winnipeg is committed to advancing reconciliation and is noted for academic excellence, Indigenous inclusion, environmental commitment, small class sizes, and campus diversity.
