for the North
The North is so much more than a place
- It is a way of life inspired by a vast, magnificent landscape and steeped in First Nations’ teachings and traditions.
- Adventure and opportunity are everywhere.
- Guided by the indomitable spirit of the wilderness and millennia of resilience and resourcefulness, the Yukon is an ideal training ground for future leaders and change-makers.
- Our currency is connection. Together, with shared purpose and respect, we break trail toward a better tomorrow.
Let’s build a prosperous north
The Yukon is home to 14 First Nations. YukonU students, staff, faculty, partners and guests are honoured to live, learn and share knowledge upon their traditional territories.
It is a place where we walk together in reconciliation to fuel a strong economy, resilient organizations and capable governments with bold leaders shaped by Yukon University.
Building a prosperous North begins with investing in education for the next generation of northern leaders. This is your invitation to join Together, for the North - a $4 million campaign to invest in YukonU, where every student is fostered to reach their fullest potential and to embrace opportunities to create positive change.
Northern students deserve the best
Our students are the future of the Yukon and the North. They are resilient, they are driven and they are proud.
It is Yukon University’s role to empower our students to reach their full potential as bold leaders and change-makers who will become powerful forces in shaping the future of the North.
