We can sit in the back. But at CUE, someone will always invite us to the front. For almost one hundred years, our students have come together through a shared belief, despite their varied interests and fascinations, their majors and minors creating a unique culture, where we could learn and create with anyone. Our vision is to become Canada’s pre-eminent small university.
