University of Saskatchewan
In a province that has 41 per cent of Canada’s arable land, the University of Saskatchewan has traditionally been seen as a hotbed of agricultural research, but there’s much more on the go. The university has made a name for itself as the home of the Canadian Light Source – Canada’s national synchrotron research facility that can accelerate electrons close to the speed of light – and the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization, one of the world’s leading developers of vaccines and therapeutic technologies.
The Health Sciences Centre, opened in 2014, integrates eight fields of health sciences. The array of programs, along with the quality of research, facilities and faculty, give students the education they need to be successful in their chosen field.
Built on 750 hectares along the South Saskatchewan River, the campus is known for its beauty. Even new buildings display greystone facades that allow them to blend in with the older neo-Gothic structures. The recently opened Gordon Oakes Red Bear Student Centre, designed by renowned architect Douglas Cardinal, is an intercultural gathering place that helps connect Aboriginal culture with the student body.
