Faculty of Professional Studies

Message from the Dean

The Faculty of Professional Studies (FPS) at the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) is proud of our students, faculty, staff, and our community. In the Faculty of Professional Studies, students engage with an outstanding team of faculty and staff. As a Faculty, Professional Studies is committed to providing our students with the tools necessary to succeed in their chosen career paths and to work with our university-wide colleagues towards our collective goal of student success.

There have been countless celebrations of the academic life at UFV over the last year in FPS including student-led events, student presentations, campus-wide forums on learning, a sharing of knowledge and research, and connections with our community.  We have strong relationships with our local partners with many of our community leaders engaged in our programs as instructors. 

Together we ensure our students are offered a learning environment that replicates the career field they are embarking upon where they will work collaboratively with their colleagues and learn through an Indigenous worldview where personalized learning, use of technology, enquiry and problem-based learning are at the core of what we deliver.

Together we have made strides to ensure student success, quality programming and excellence in teaching are at the core of what we do day-to-day.
