It has been rated Canada's top comprehensive university by Maclean's magazine during each of the past five years (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019). With three campuses, 30,000 undergraduate students, 5,700 graduate students and post-doctoral fellows, over 160,000 alumni and close to a 1,000 tenure-track faculty, SFU has developed a strategic vision as an “engaged university defined by its dynamic integration of innovative education, cutting-edge research, and far-reaching community engagement.” The university has a substantial international student population and worldwide research and program linkages. Its new tagline is: “Canada’s engaged university.”
