About UPEI

An Environment to Thrive

Whatever your passion and your goals, UPEI has what you need to carve your niche. Our programs offer personalized learning experiences, small class sizes, great access to professors and instructors, and career-focused outcomes.


The freedom to teach and conduct scholarly work guided by curiosity and intellectual inquiry, without deference to prescribed doctrine, is fundamental to our University. This freedom is essential to advancing and disseminating knowledge and carries with it the duty to use that freedom in a manner that is consistent with an honest search for knowledge. It is important for the credibility of the University that this quest for knowledge is carried out with integrity and rigor.

As individuals and as a community, we are accountable to those we serve for the quality of education we deliver and the transparency of our operations. We will conduct ourselves with integrity, employing our expertise to serve others and benefit society.

We aspire to excel in education, scholarly endeavors, research, and service.

We are dedicated to making UPEI an open, accessible, and welcoming community, and to the fair treatment of all persons. We are committed to continually re-examining and growing our understanding of the role UPEI must play in promoting a better understanding of cultures and identities, and the needs of community members with disabilities in a manner that supports education and respectful relationships.
