Univation highlights

Scaling up proven practices and taking down barriers to inclusion are essential to preparing Canada’s young people for a disrupted future.

This is a key take-away from Univation, a national forum bringing students together with leaders at universities and in government, business and civil society, to explore the challenges and opportunities in preparing our next generation of leaders and innovators.

Co-hosted by Universities Canada and Rideau Hall Foundation, Univation created a dynamic space to share bold ideas for “future-proofing” Canada’s next generation. Together, participants explored innovations in teaching and learning, opportunities to improve student access and success and entrepreneurial education.

Thank you to the more than 100 participants – and particularly the presenters, partners and students – who brought such inspiring and creative energy to the forum.
