Cape Breton University

Mission Statement:

If there was one word to describe the setting in which Cape Breton University resides, it would have to be idyllic. Cool, unclouded harbours encircled by sandy strands , gently rolling hills graced with deep, rich forests, and the warm embrace of a supportive, energetic and devoted community lend themselves to creating the best of possible elements conducive for a rewarding learning experience. Giving more than a passing glance to the themes of history and heritage with its Gaelic language courses, and embracing the rapid pace of biological advancement through biotechnology and pharmaceutical research programs, Cape Breton is rapidly setting itself apart as a respected and unique foundation which credits its strong roots and at the same time stretches forward to explore the promise of the future. Small wonder, then, that our graduates ranked their educational journey here at the top of the list in Maclean's University Graduate Satisfaction survey in 2006.
