The University of Winnipeg (UWinnipeg) is a public university in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada that offers undergraduate faculties of art, business and economics, education, science and kinesiology and applied health as well as graduate programs. UWinnipeg's founding colleges were Manitoba College and Wesley College, which merged to form United College in 1938. The University of Winnipeg was established in 1967 when United College received its charter. The governance was modeled on the provincial University of Toronto Act of 1906 which established a bicameral system of university government consisting of a senate (faculty), responsible for academic policy, and a board of governors (citizens) exercising exclusive control over financial policy and having formal authority in all other matters. The president, appointed by the board, was a link between the bodies to perform institutional leadership.
UWinnipeg's current President and Vice-Chancellor is Annette Trimbee, succeeding Lloyd Axworthy who served from 2004 to 2014.
Maclean's magazine and The Globe and Mail newspaper consistently rank the university in the top fifteen of all Canadian universities whose primary focus is undergraduate education in the category of student satisfaction. In 2013 the U of W ranked 13th out of 19 primarily undergraduate institutions.
Academic English Stream This high-intermediate to advanced stream prepares students for academic studies in English-medium institutions, either in High School, University or College, by developing the skills students require to be successful in an academic environment. Students will develop all four language areas (listening / reading / writing / speaking) in order to apply them in an academic setting. Students will improve their ability to take notes, read academic material, write essays and give presentations. Students also learn vocabulary they will use in University or College courses. At the highest level of the program, students will have the opportunity to begin their University studies by taking a first year business course: “Introduction to Business I" with the support of an adjunct course specifically developed to help ELP students to successfully complete their University course.
