To stay on the cutting edge and to continue to offer the most innovative and comprehensive university experience possible, Lakehead is constantly evolving. We have been changing with the times for the past 50 years but that doesn't mean we have forgotten who we are. Every decision we make is guided by very simple but very important principles.
To provide a transformative university experience that is far from ordinary.
To be recognized as an innovative comprehensive university that provides an education that is about how to think, not what to think.
We believe our students make Lakehead University different. We believe that our students want an innovative comprehensive university where they have the highest chance of success. We believe that our students have the passion and drive to realize their dreams and succeed. We believe that our students want the intellectual freedom to pursue the unconventional. We believe in the diversity that comes from our students of many cultures and many nations. We believe that our students are passionate about both their own individuality and their communities. We believe in our students.
