Among our nearly 130,000 living alumni are our province’s and some of our country’s most influential leaders. This includes chief executive officers at some of Canada’s most successful companies; world-class physicians; exceptional researchers; groundbreaking artists; National Chiefs of the Assembly of First Nations, jurists on provincial, Canadian and international courts; and senior government and elected officials at the highest levels.
As Manitoba’s only medical-doctoral university, we offer programs in areas as diverse as the humanities, the visual and performing arts, science, medicine, law, agriculture, engineering and architecture. This strong learning environment has helped nurture a climate of academic excellence. During our history, 97 students have been named Rhodes Scholars, the most from any university in Western Canada.
At the University of Manitoba, education has no borders or barriers. We support a climate of respect where all people are valued and where individuals from all communities, ages and cultures are welcome.
