Ey Swayel Si:yam Siya:ye. Welcome to the University of the Fraser Valley!
At UFV, we engage learners, transform lives, and build community. We envision our campus to be a gathering place for learners, leaders, and seekers. We are passionate about providing students with opportunities to grow, explore, experience, discover, and learn. Our small class sizes and dedicated faculty offer students personalized learning experiences. We are committed to collaborating with community partners, allowing students to participate in experiential learning and to engage both local and global citizenship behaviours.
I hope you enjoy your visit to our website and find the information you seek. Whether you join us from across the campus or from across the world, I am proud to welcome you to our UFV community.
UFV is located on the traditional, unceded, and beautiful territory of the Stó:lō people, the people of the river. Long before Canada was formed, the Stó:lō occupied the land on which UFV is located. They lived in the Fraser Valley and lower Fraser Canyon of British Columbia and they spoke Halq'eméylem, also known as the upriver dialect. UFV recognizes and honours the contribution that Aboriginal people have made − and continue to make − to our community. The university supports Indigenous learners and seeks to incorporate indigenous ways of knowing into the curriculum.
