Vice President, Community Engagement

Long before Canada was formed, the Stó:lō (people of the river) occupied the land on which the University of the Fraser Valley (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. The university is steadfastly committed to Indigenization and the honouring of Indigenous knowledge at all touchpoints of learning. Learn more about Stó:lō territory by watching the video: Beautiful Land of the River

UFV is a fully accredited, public university that enrolls approximately 15,000 students per year. Founded in 1974 as Fraser Valley College, UFV achieved university status in 2008 and from its inception has been a student-centred institution and dedicated partner in the Fraser Valley’s social, cultural, economic, and sustainable development. It has campuses and locations in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission, and Hope, and a presence in Chandigarh, India.

Grounded in UFV’s core values of integrity, inclusivity, community, and excellence, the plan defines the strategic goals and imperatives UFV will integrate into all activities to transform its work and carry out its mission of engaging learners, transforming lives, and building community.
