While the roots of Nipissing University extend back to the 1900s with the North Bay Normal School, Nipissing University College was formed in 1967 as an affiliate of Laurentian University.
Nipissing University received its charter as an independent University in 1992 and was created to address the specific needs of Northern Ontario.
Nipissing’s strategic priorities regarding the student experience and academic and research excellence are grounded in this commitment.
Nipissing is proud to be a primarily undergraduate university with a reputation for excellence in:
Teacher education, arts, science, and professional programs with four distinct nursing programs are proportionally the most nursing intensive university in Ontario.
Nipissing’s strategic focus on student success and experience has translated into consistent top rankings in the country in the areas of:
Student support, student experience, faculty, and residences as a primarily undergraduate institution.
Students find themselves in a high-quality academic environment that is student-focused and based on personal teaching practices, innovative approaches to learning, and a growing research culture.
Access and equity have been a long-standing priority of Nipissing, focusing on students who might not otherwise participate in postsecondary education without interventions and support.
Nipissing has experienced continued growth in the enrolment of full-time first-generation students, increases in the number of students with disabilities, and the number of full-time Indigenous students enrolled at the University.
Nipissing is committed to making an impact and playing a positive role in its communities' educational, social, cultural, and economic life.
