WILFRID LAURIER UNIVERSITY

Wilfrid Laurier University is known for academic excellence and a culture that inspires leadership and purpose. The university focuses on integrated and engaged learning and was the first university in Canada to formally recognize the benefits of volunteer and leadership activities by offering students a co-curricular record that complements their academic transcript. In 2016, the university received the Changemaker Campus designation by Ashoka U, formally recognizing Laurier as a global leader in social entrepreneurship and social innovation education.

The university has campuses in Waterloo and Brantford, as well as locations in Kitchener, Toronto and Chongqing, China. Laurier was established as the Evangelical Lutheran Seminary of Canada in 1911 and remains the home of the affiliated Waterloo Lutheran Seminary.
