Programs and Projects

To serve UFV’s diverse community, we must be truly comprehensive. And that we are, with programs from welding and electronics to master’s degrees in criminal justice and social work.

Research, equipment, library acquisitions, technology, athletics, student conferences, visiting lecturers, new buildings… Projects of all sizes exist within many of our program areas. Whatever your interests, we can help you reach your philanthropic goals by finding a project that resonates with you.


Agriculture Centre of Excellence

UFV is launching a new School of Agriculture at Canada Education Park. The Ministry of Advanced Education has announced an investment of $1 million and with the contributions of Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation, UFV, and corporate sponsors we are over half way to our $3.5 million goal.  But we need your help to raise the last $1.2 million.

Our programs in criminal justice garner national and international attention. The faculty are among the best anywhere and students come from far and wide to study under their tutelage.

Our arts and science programs provide our students with solid knowledge of fundamental theories and concepts in areas such as communication, language, design, history, biology, chemistry, statistics and psychology.

Within the Faculty of Health Sciences, issues regarding our health (particularly as the population ages) and social issues are high on the public agenda. This faculty graduates professionals who deliver critical services in our community, including nursing and dental care.

In remaining true to our roots, we continue to proudly offer trades and technology programs, including welding, electrical, plumbing, auto collision repair and drafting.

Our agriculture programs have horticulture and livestock production options and allow students to ladder their diploma into a Bachelor of Business Administration for Agriculture Management degree at UFV.

Our School of Business prepares students for the real world through enriched learning experiences and courses taught by instructors with industry experience. Furthermore, extensive co-operative education options integrate academic study with on-the-job training.

Continuing Studies offers certificate programs, part-time and full-time vocational or upgrading courses, business development and training programs as well as contract-training services. Open to the general public, many of our continuing studies courses have been a means of initiating a university education.


Creating or contributing to a student award could be one of the most meaningful and memorable donations you’ll ever make. Your award, which can be named after you, your business, or a loved one, is given to a deserving student based on criteria that you establish. Whether it’s a scholarship based on academic excellence, a bursary based on financial need or a leadership award based on community service, your award will significantly impact the future of the student who receives it.

The agricultural industry is the heart of the Fraser Valley. Furthermore, as physical climate changes occur, water, healthy soils and sustainable growing practices have become major public issues. As the University of the Fraser Valley is committed to being both relevant and responsive to the needs of its communities, developing Agriculture programs, facilities and research is our top priority. A gift to agriculture is a testament to the importance of this sector now and forever.

On June 24, 2009 an historic event took place on the UFV campus and a new chapter began in the dynamic development of the university. The Mennonite community, represented by the Mennonite Faith & Learning Society (MFLS), pledged to create a program to enhance the intellectual presence and provide greater awareness of the wide-ranging contributions of Mennonites in the Fraser Valley, the Lower Mainland, and beyond. This initiative established the vision for the Centre for Mennonite Studies at the University of the Fraser Valley.

For many years now, student demand for a UFV education has been growing. Although very exciting and a testament to our excellent reputation, it has put pressure on our facilities and space. A critical shortage of space at the Abbotsford campus and the recent acquisition of land at Canada Education Park in Chilliwack allows us to announce unique naming and sponsorship opportunities. New buildings, rooms and facilities equals your chance to market your name to students, staff, and the general Fraser Valley population.

In order to remain competitive, our athletics teams are always looking for private support. From corporate sponsorship to our always popular adopt-a-cascade program, your generosity can mean the difference between a good team versus a great one. Current varsity teams include men’s and women’s basketball, rowing, soccer, volleyball, cheerleading and men’s golf.

Alternatively, you may wish to support the areas of greatest need on campus. Through the Annual Fund, your gift, combined with the gifts of other generous friends of the University, will have a significant impact on the students, programs and projects that need it most. Supporting the Annual Fund is a powerful statement about your passion for the University and your commitment to our success.

The University of the Fraser Valley offers a plethora of programs and projects that are looking for community partners and private support. Please contact us at any time to discuss your philanthropic goals and personal interests.
