The University of Guelph is dedicated to cultivating the essentials for life – water, food, environment, health and community.
The university community also shares a profound sense of social responsibility, an obligation to address global issues and a concern for international development.
The university’s colleges include the College of Arts, the College of Biological Science, the College of Management and Economics, the College of Physical and Engineering Science, the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences, the Ontario Agricultural College (and its three regional campuses at Kemptville, Ridgetown and Alfred), and the Ontario Veterinary College. In 2002, the university joined the Humber College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning to create the University of Guelph-Humber in Toronto. Currently, more than 3,800 students are enrolled at Guelph-Humber.
Approximately 21,600 full-time equivalent undergraduate and graduate students are enrolled on campus in full- and part-time studies offered in more than 80 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Co-op programs give students the opportunity to learn and earn outside the classroom. Guelph has about 800 international students and more than 95,000 alumni worldwide.
Guelph’s high quality reflects in its world-class faculty who excel as teachers and researchers: over the years, 25 faculty have been named Fellows of the Royal Society and 14 have won 3M Teaching Fellowships.
With more than $140 million in external research funding, Guelph is one of Canada’s top research institutions. It is Canada’s innovative leader in plant and animal life sciences and a premier centre for agri-food, biotechnology and environmental research, education and outreach.
The University of Guelph offers a broad range of world-class undergraduate and graduate programs in the arts and humanities, social sciences, commerce and management, biological and physical sciences, engineering, agriculture and veterinary science. Guelph has a rich and dynamic suite of experiential learning programs, including semesters abroad, co-op placements and undergraduate research assistantships. Award-winning e-learning programs are just one facet of its overall recognized excellence in alternative learning delivery modes.
In addition to state-of-the-art facilities in the new Science Complex and Pathobiology building, Phase II of the new Engineering Complex is scheduled to open in 2013.
