Laurier is a remarkable university with a long tradition of inspiring lives of leadership and purpose. You will see these words on our signs, read them in our publications and hear them on our campuses. These words are much more than merely a slogan or a marketing device. They are the foundation of our university identity, and they have been a central part of who we are as a university for more than 100 years.
The essence of inspiring lives of leadership and purpose comes directly from our people: a strong and supportive sense of community, highly engaged students, and enthusiastic commitment of highly talented faculty and staff. It is our focus on inspiration, leadership and purpose that shapes the Laurier experience and drives a deep commitment to academic excellence that is reflected in teaching, research and experiential learning.
With a focus on leadership, purpose, and inspired living our students develop into engaged citizens with the skills to secure bright futures and to contribute meaningfully to the world around them.
I invite you to become part of the Laurier story, and to join with me in sharing it with the world.
Dr. Max Blouw
President and Vice-Chancellor
