Canadian University College
Lacombe, Canada


University description (as per official university website)

Western Canada experienced unprecedented growth during the first decade of the 20th century. Immigrants from Europe, the eastern provinces, and the United States followed the railroads westward. The growing population made it necessary to organize the territory into provinces. Alberta gained its provincial status in 1905 and two years later a group of Seventh-day Adventist laypersons and church leaders established a school for their youth near Leduc, Alberta. Canadian University College traces its roots to this first Alberta Seventh-day Adventist secondary school.

Overlooking miles of the surrounding countryside and consisting of a campus and over 1,200 acres of farmland, the present location of the University College on a hilltop in Lacombe, Alberta was chosen as the permanent site for the secondary school in 1909. This high school has continued to operate until the present and now has the name Parkview Adventist Academy.

Academic growth of the institution has been continuous for almost a century. In 1919 the Board of Trustees authorized the establishment of a junior college. This followed in 1947 with the development of a four-year program in theology. In 1971 Canadian Union College, as it was known from 1947 to 1997, entered into an affiliation agreement with the University of Alberta. What was initially an agreement that covered first year courses only was later extended to include the second year. Between 1979 and 1996 the University College offered several baccalaureate degree programs through a Partner Campus Agreement with Union College, Lincoln, Nebraska. The final year of the Union College Partner Campus Agreement was the 2007/08 academic year. Between 1991 and 1996 the Government of Alberta authorized the University College to offer several three- and four-year degree programs. In 1997, to more correctly reflect the degree-granting status of the institution, the name was changed to Canadian University College.

Canadian University College (CUC) is located in central Alberta just a short drive from the world-renowned ski resorts of Banff and Jasper. CUC is a Christian university offering over 35 major or track choices in Campus Alberta Quality Council (CAQC) approved bachelor degree programs in Arts, Music, Science and Education. CUC is sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) Church and holds CAQC approval for its degree programs. With over 400 students coming from all over North America and various international locales, the warm family-like atmosphere on campus has a distinct cultural flavor. At CUC we believe in the complete university college experience. We provide an environment where academic, physical, and spiritual growth is encouraged. Where do you want to go? We’ll help get you there.

Affiliated with CUC and operating on the same campus is Parkview Adventist Academy, a grades 10-12 boarding school.


Canadian University College will be the school of choice for those students who desire a quality education in a Christian setting that values individual achievement and the spirit of community renewal.


Canadian University College will educate students to think with discernment, to believe with insight and commitment, and to act with confidence, compassion and competence.
