Learner-Centred Student Experience

The Lakehead Experience must flow both from its history and its mission. Increasing diversity and a clear commitment to helping students succeed will create a transformative student experience. Lakehead University offers unrivalled opportunities for life experiences that are far from ordinary. A clear example of this is the active student involvement in Lakehead’s varsity athletics program and the program’s strong community relationships. The University itself, through the dual focus on one-stop services and giving students the tools to carve their own unique path to success will bring additional richness to the Lakehead Experience.
