U of R Impact

At the University of Regina, we give you the chance to be part of something bigger: the U of R impact on the world.

The U of R Impact is the greater purpose of our teaching, learning, research and community work. As a student, you’ll be a central part of that greater purpose, helping make a positive impact in the real world through ideas and actions.

We strive to connect your student experience and everything you learn to:

  • Big issues in modern life
  • Important global or local goals
  • Personal impact and empowerment – in your education, your career and your life
