University of Prince Edward Island
Located on 140 acres in Charlottetown, the birthplace of Confederation, the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI) has a rich history with roots in two predecessor institutions: Prince of Wales College (est. 1834) and St. Dunstan’s University (est. 1855). Established in 1969, UPEI’s current four faculties (arts, education, science, and veterinary medicine) and two schools (business and nursing) offer a wide range of programs and degrees to more than 4,600 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students from around the world. Home to seven Canada Research Chairs, a Canada Excellence Research Chair in Aquatic Epidemiology, and four 3M Teaching Award-winners, UPEI offers its students access to over 200 exceptional faculty and research staff.
