University of Canada West, Vancouver’s a business-focused university, was founded in 2004 by Dr. David Strong, an accomplished academic and distinguished scientist who served as President of the University of Victoria for more than a decade. The vision was to create an independent, accessible university with a practical focus and an emphasis on teaching excellence.
I joined UCW in September of 2016 as the VP Academic after a career at Vancouver Island University and Thompson Rivers University in a variety of roles including Director of Graduate Business Programs and various stints as Dean of Business and International Education. I was named Interim President in January 2019.
Located in Vancouver’s vibrant business district in the downtown core and drawing students from more than 52 countries, the university offers a dynamic learning environment, personal attention, competitive tuition rates and scholarships to recognize academic excellence.
University Canada West is a student-focused contemporary institution with capped class sizes and professors with real-world business experience.
Our flexible program delivery allows students to study online or on-campus or choose a combination to further their education. With four semesters per year, motivated students can complete their degrees faster than at many traditional universities.
