We’re a vibrant, inclusive, research-intensive community of learning, the largest bilingual (French-English) university in the world. We’re one of Canada’s top 10 research universities and a community pillar of our country’s national capital. We’re also your home away from home.
Whether you’re a prospective or current student, a professor or staff member, a graduate, friend, or partner, at the University of Ottawa, we encourage you to seek out bold ideas and inspired solutions in our shared pursuit of knowledge.
As we work together to become more agile, more connected, more impactful and more sustainable, we remain committed to excellence in teaching, to cutting-edge, high-quality disciplinary and interdisciplinary research, and to nurturing thoughtful, independently-minded leaders who will help to transform the world.
It’s a privilege each day to witness the talent and creativity displayed across all disciplines at the University and to interact with the remarkable people whose aspirations and achievements illuminate this campus.
The greatest strength of any institution is its people. I want to thank you for choosing to be part of our community.
President and Vice-Chancellor
