The University College of the North (UCN) offers college and university programming across 14 locations throughout Manitoba. UCN is uniquely mandated to serve a culturally diverse population. The institution operates under a tri-cameral governance system consisting of a Governing Council, Learning Council and Council of Elders. UCN offers more than 40 programs and confers degrees, diplomas and certificates. Some of UCN’s programming is a result of partnering with other institutions like the Joint Baccalaureate Nursing program. UCN offers educational opportunities in a “close to home” approach through the regional centre network. UCN currently has 12 regional centres, 9 of which are in First Nations communities.
- UCN provides education close to home through two main campuses and 12 regional centres.
- UCN focuses on providing education that is relevant to Aboriginal and northern Manitobans.
- UCN is governed by a tri-cameral governance system that includes a Governing Council, Learning Council and a Council of Elders. Each council has representation on the other to promote collaboration.
- Our small class sizes mean that students can enjoy more opportunities for personal interaction. They lead to better classroom discussions, to help students get the most out of their education.
- So many of UCN’s programs provide students with unique practical training opportunities including conducting field studies in the Natural Resources Management Technology winter or fall camps.
