Capilano University is a post-secondary institution serving the North Shore. Our programs prepare students for careers in a broad range of sectors. We also provide English for Academic Preparation as well as other ESL programs. Capilano University is the steward for the North Shore Literacy Group, working with our partners to promote learning for all. In collaboration with community partners, the Community Development and Outreach Department also offers community-based literacy programs at John Braithwaite Community Centre and Queen Mary School.
We are committed to the work of the NSIIP because we want to be a part of any community process that promotes interculturalism and strengthens our capacity to be an inclusive and caring community. As an institution, we serve a diverse student body, many of whom are newcomers and some of whom are international students. It is important that we learn from our community partners how to celebrate and engage the opportunities that diversity brings our institution and community.
