Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Welcome to Wilfrid Laurier University.

With roots stretching back to 1911, Laurier has evolved over the past century into a comprehensive multi-campus, multi-community university that excels at teaching, research and student experience.

Our vibrant sense of community and our strategic focus on developing the whole student is reflected in the university’s institutional proposition, Inspiring lives of leadership and purpose.

These words are at the heart of the university’s identity. Our focus on inspiration, leadership and purpose shapes the entire Laurier experience and fuels our commitment to academic excellence.

As a community dedicated to learning and discovery, Laurier values diversity and inclusivity and strives to create a supportive and empowering environment for all. Together, we encourage ourselves and others to engage with the world in all its complexity and to contribute to society in meaningful ways.

Laurier truly is a welcoming and inspiring community. I invite you to learn more about our remarkable university through the pages of this website.

Dr. Deborah MacLatchy
President and Vice-Chancellor
