The University

An institution with a distinct commitment to teaching, Laurier combines programs in humanities, social sciences, and sciences, with those in professional schools. The Laurier community provides an environment that fosters personal growth and leadership as well as the development of excellence in graduate programs, scholarly research, creativity, and professional achievement.
