Ottawa – The Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada today accepted into its membership Edmonton-based MacEwan University.
Membership for MacEwan University was recommended by a visiting committee of university presidents and approved by AUCC’s Board of Directors and membership.
“We’re very pleased to welcome MacEwan University to membership in AUCC,” says Paul Davidson, president of AUCC. “We look forward to working with the leadership, faculty, staff and students of MacEwan University to advance higher education.”
Founded in 1971, MacEwan University has evolved to become a comprehensive degree-granting university. It now offers more than 60 programs including undergraduate degrees, applied degrees, diplomas, certificates, continuing education and corporate training.
“Everyone at MacEwan University is excited about our new membership in the AUCC,” says MacEwan University President David Atkinson. “It is very gratifying to have our university recognized and we look forward to being a contributing member.”
MacEwan University has four schools and faculties throughout Edmonton which serve nearly 14,000 full-time undergraduate students: the Faculty of Arts and Science, the Faculty of Health and Community Studies, the Centre for the Arts and Communications, and the School of Business.
With the addition of MacEwan University, AUCC now represents 95 Canadian public and private not-for-profit universities. AUCC is the national voice of Canada’s universities and advocates for higher education and university research with the federal government on behalf of its member universities.
