SFU’s strategic vision is to be Canada’s “engaged university.”

To achieve our vision, we integrate innovative education with trailblazing research and far-reaching community engagement.

  • Engagement is part of everything we do. It establishes a strong foundation for developing innovative educational opportunities, such as experiential learning, as well as for informing research programs and developing robust community and research partnerships.
  • We engage with communities, organizations and partners using our institutional strengths—from our internationally recognized student co-op program, to our cutting-edge researchers, to some of the world’s best facilities in computing science, materials science, and clean energy.
  • Our commitment to engagement informs how we disseminate knowledge, and how we contribute to citizenship in local communities across Canada and around the world.

Through engagement and innovation, we are educating students who are ready for a world of change.
