Founded in 1971, MacEwan University provides student-focused instruction in a warm and supportive atmosphere. Focuses on teaching and learning. It’s been a cornerstone of who we are for more than 40 years. And we continue to build on that reputation.

Offering more than 65 programs, the university provides a transformative education in a collaborative and supportive learning environment. Creativity thrives here through research and innovation that engages students, faculty and the community. 

MacEwan University has an intentional focus on teaching and as a result has scored very well in the Globe and Mail's Canadian University Report. In the 2014 Report, our students gave us top marks – awarding “A+” grades for instructors' teaching style and class sizes, along with “A” grades for the quality of teaching and student-faculty interaction.
