As the only post-secondary institution on the North Shore, our core value is providing a distinct educational experience students will not be able to get anywhere else.
The health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff are at the forefront of everything we do at CapU. From accessibility services to personal and academic counselling, we are here for you.
We are continually challenging ourselves to improve the programs and courses offered at CapU, with minors making their debut in 2021 and microcredentials in various subjects starting soon.

The CapU brand can be distilled to five words that capture how we started, who we are and who we will be. We are confident, unified, creative, enduring and luminous. See what we mean below.
We are confident
Capilano University graduates are confident in their ability to affect positive change. Students are secure in the knowledge they have received the solid foundation required to achieve success. Reflecting this sentiment is our bold, broad-minded and proud presentation to the world.
We are unified
Diverse in thinking, but connected in our vision and mission, we work together to build the Capilano University community. Collaboration is key to the way we think and how we communicate our brand.
We are creative
Creativity is at the heart of Capilano University – visible in student output, academic programming and faculty collaboration. Our brand reflects our unique character, versatility and positive outlook.
We are enduring
We are proud of Capilano University's more than 50-year history, our relationship with local First Nations, the origin of our name, and the foundation all these elements create for our future. Our brand is forward-thinking, dynamic and embracing change – self-assured in our strong foundation.
We are luminating
Through education, our environment and world-class architecture, Capilano University is illuminated and authentic. Visually light and striving for sustainable attributes, our identity and brand radiates this commitment.
