The University of Manitoba is Western Canada's first university and was founded in 1877. It is the province's largest, most comprehensive and only research-intensive post-secondary educational institution. In a typical year, the university has an enrolment of approximately 27,000 students - 24,000 undergraduate and 3,000 graduate. The university offers 82 degrees, 51 at the undergraduate level. Most academic units offer graduate studies programs leading to master's or doctoral degrees.

As the largest research-intensive institution in the province of Manitoba, the University of Manitoba is dedicated to facilitating learning, increasing understanding and improving the quality of life here in Manitoba and around the world. From the development of canola and advances in wireless communication, to the prevention of Rh disease of the newborn and breakthrough discoveries concerning the transmission of HIV/AIDS, our researchers have made contributions that have had a global impact.

In 2006-07, the University acquired more than $150 million in research income. The University currently holds 48 Canada Research Chairs, is the network leader of one of Canada's 21 networks of excellence (ISIS Canada) and a participant in 14 others. It is also home to a wide range of research centers and institutes. Within the past decade, Smartpark was established with the assistance of provincial and national governments and is maturing as an environment where collaborations between university and industry enhance the commercialization of new technologies.
