The University of Winnipeg is an urban campus in Manitoba’s largest city. A welcoming, student-focused institution noted for academic excellence, Indigenous scholarship, small class sizes, campus diversity, and a commitment to sustainability.

UWinnipeg has embraced the sharing of knowledge and understanding about Indigenous peoples’ culture by introducing the Indigenous Course Requirement (ICR) for all new UWinnipeg students. The ICR is a community effort to contribute to truth and reconciliation in Canada.

The university offers undergraduate students a well-rounded academic experience that gives them a distinct competitive advantage over their counterparts at other institutions thanks to the tremendous opportunities to engage in research and scholarship alongside internationally renowned faculty in a vast array of topics and across disciplines. Undergraduate students benefit from high-quality training and expanding opportunities for engagement in innovative research.UWinnipeg distinguishes itself as a research innovator through many of its growing number of graduate programs, such as its recent Master in Management with specialization in Technology, Innovation and Operations (MiM).  In the fall of 2018, the university will start offering a Master of Arts in Criminal Justice. It is also one of only 26 universities worldwide to offer the internationally recognized Masters in Development Practice in Indigenous Development thanks to a prestigious MacArthur Foundation grant.

The university offers other joint master’s programs with the University of Manitoba, several applied programs with Red River College, and international development and conflict resolution programs through the affiliated Menno Simons College.
