About

The University of Regina (U of R) has campuses located in Regina and Saskatoon on Treaty 4 and Treaty 6 territories. These are the ancestral lands of the nêhiyawak (nay-hi-yuh-wuk, Cree), Anihšināpēk (uh-nish-i-naa-payk, Saulteaux), Dakota, Lakota, Nakoda, and the homeland of the Métis/Michif Nation.

A comprehensive university, the U of R traces its roots back to the creation of Regina College, a small residential high school established by the Methodist church in 1911. The College grew in size and significance becoming a campus of the University of Saskatchewan and, ultimately, an independent degree granting university – the University of Regina – in 1974.

The title of the University of Regina's 2020-2025 Strategic Plan, All Our Relations, is the English equivalent of a phrase familiar to most North American First Nations Peoples. It is often used to formally acknowledge the interconnectedness of family and all their relations including those that walk on two feet, those that walk on four feet, those that swim in the great waters, those that fly in the sky and those that crawl on their bellies.

Through the strategic plan, the University of Regina is committed to these five areas of focus and the specific goals related to each:

  • Discovery
  • Truth and Reconciliation
  • Well-being and Belonging
  • Environment and Climate Action
  • Impact and Identity

Sustainability at  U of R

The University of Regina and the federated colleges are committed to meaningful progress toward sustainability. As global citizens, we collectively and individually accept the call to action to address climate change and promote a sustainable society. The Office of Sustainability serves as a focal point for catalyzing collaboration with all campus units to strengthen ongoing and emergent activities. Working with leaders and individuals across the institution, the Office of Sustainability will move the Sustainability Action Plan forward and facilitate supports for sustainability efforts in teaching, research, operations, and engagement that foster a space to discover and reciprocally learn together.
