Vision, Mission, Values

Vision Statement

The University of Regina seeks to reflect the world in which we want to live – a world that values empowered citizens, generates high-impact scholarship, and embraces Canada’s diversity.

Mission Statement

The University of Regina’s vocation is to explore unanswered questions. We provide high-quality and accessible education, influential research, creative endeavours, and meaningful scholarly experiences in pursuit of local and global contributions to knowledge. Investigation of and reflection upon varied intellectual pursuits is fundamental and we engage our students in these pursuits, seeking to instill in them a lifelong quest for knowledge and understanding.


Mutual Respect, Integrity, and Honesty
Our treatment of each other is principled, open, transparent, and respectful. We are a safe, healthy, and supportive community that prioritizes the well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and community partners.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
We are committed to creating and promoting equitable systems that foster diversity and inclusion for students, faculty, and staff. Through our adoption of a mainstreaming approach to equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI), all people - including women, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, visible minority groups, and members of LGBTQ2S+ communities - are integral members of our community.

Indigenous Ways of Knowing and Being
We are committed to Truth and Reconciliation. We aspire to walk together in a good way and strengthen our relationships which are based on mutual respect and accountability. Ongoing and emerging activities will be accountable to future generations.

Communities and Social Responsibility
We employ our expertise to serve each other, the environment, and society. We nurture our reciprocal relationships with our communities by being committed to vibrancy, inclusivity, and demonstrating social, environmental, and economic responsibility.
