Proud … strong … independent.

Capturing the spirt of the U of R is best done by our students, alumni, faculty, staff and community members … Their U of R pride shines through. — Linsay Rabyj, Executive Director, Communications and Marketing

Fifty years on, today’s U of R provides world-class learning opportunities for almost 17,000 students. We’re meeting the needs of our province, our country, and beyond by training tomorrow’s teachers, engineers, entrepreneurs, social workers, scientists, and nurses.

“Capturing the spirt of the U of R is best done by our students, alumni, faculty, staff and community members,” says Linsay Rabyj, Executive Director, Communications and Marketing. “They know best the difference a U of R education makes in their lives and in our world. They understand our commitment to academic excellence, groundbreaking research, reconciliation, hands-on-learning, and the kinds of supports and earn-while-you-learn opportunities that ensure U of R students are career ready at graduation. Their U of R pride shines through.”

The 50th Anniversary video features clips from U of R students, alumni, faculty, and staff, including Chancellor Pam Klein, custodial services staff member Dorrett Poyser-Krause, alumni Kim Rinas, and President Jeff and many more.

About the University of Regina

2024 marks our 50th anniversary as an independent University (although our roots as Regina College date back more than a century!). As we celebrate our past, we work towards a future that is as limitless as the prairie horizon. We support the health and well-being of our 16,700 students and provide them with hands-on learning opportunities to develop career-ready graduates – more than 90,000 alumni enrich communities in Saskatchewan and around the globe. Our research enterprise has grown to 21 research centres and 9 Canada Research Chairs. Our campuses are on Treaties 4 and 6 - the territories of the nêhiyawak, Anihšināpēk, Dakota, Lakota, and Nakoda peoples, and the homeland of the Michif/Métis nation. We seek to grow our relationships with Indigenous communities to build a more inclusive future.

Let’s go far, together.
