Message from the President & Vice-Chancellor, Mr. Konrad Jonasson
Welcome to the University College of the North (UCN) website.
Situated in the heart of the Boreal Forest, UCN is an educational institution providing university and college programming designed to serve Northern and Aboriginal people incorporating traditional philosophies into our governance model, administration, hiring practices and academics. Formerly the Keewatin Community College, UCN came into existence in 2004. We are very proud of our extended presence across Manitoba with campuses in The Pas and Thompson and 12 regional centres throughout northern and central Manitoba. These regional centres allow us to provide relevant, community-driven post-secondary programs in a way that uniquely addresses those community’s needs.
Our unique governance system consists of a Governing Council, Learning Council and Council of Elders. Our Council of Elders and Resident Elders guide our institution by sharing knowledge of Elders’ traditional wisdom, beliefs and values.
I invite you to explore our website further for specific academic programs, further information about our unique tri-cameral governance system or other details you may wish to find out about our truly remarkable institution.
Thank you again for visiting our website and I look forward to seeing you in our hallways!
