About SFU

AQ


Named after explorer Simon Fraser, SFU opened on September 9, 1965. Taking only 30 months to grow from the idea stage into an almost-completed campus with 2,500 students it was dubbed the “Instant University”.


Just over 42 years later SFU has over 30,000 students and 100,000 alumni, more than 700 tenure-track faculty and 1,600 staff. The original campus has grown into three vibrant campuses in Burnaby, Vancouver and Surrey and SFU’s reputation has grown into one of innovative teaching, research, and community outreach.

 

Our latest Report to the Community from President Michael Stevenson lists some key achievements and research projects at SFU, the university that is truly "Thinking of the World". And of the environment, health, arts and culture, and more. You can also take a look at the Best of 2008, for some of the top stories from SFU in 2008.
