University of Regina
The University of Regina—with campuses located in Regina and Saskatoon on Treaty 4 and Treaty 6 territories, the ancestral lands of the Cree, Saulteaux, Dakota, Nakoda, and Lakota nations and the homeland of the Métis—is a comprehensive, mid-sized university that traces its roots back to the creation of Regina College, a small residential high school established by the Methodist church in 1911. The College grew in size and significance becoming a campus of the University of Saskatchewan and, ultimately, an independent degree granting university – the University of Regina – in 1974.
U of R offers more than 120 undergraduate programs and 78 graduate programs, including many specialized programs such as police studies and public policy. Tuition remains below the national average and the University ranks second nationally among comprehensive universities in the level of student financial support – scholarships, awards, and bursaries – available as a percentage of tuition.
The University supports excellence in research, teaching, and public service. It is one of Canada’s leading comprehensive universities, ranked first in international research collaboration in 2014 by Research Inforsource Inc. Scholars and scientists at the university conduct research of global impact and importance. The University is home to more than 400 active researchers, including faculty members, graduate and undergraduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and nine Canada Research Chairs.
The University of Regina is nestled in Wascana Park, one of the largest urban parks in North America. Imagine attending a university surrounded by natural beauty (including a lake) and kilometres of walking and bike paths. Nearby are coffee shops, restaurants, and grocery stores where students will find products from many cultures (a taste of home). Downtown Regina, with its many stores and restaurants, is an easy bus, bike, or car ride away.
