Yukon College becomes Yukon University

May 20, 2020

Yukon College has officially become Yukon University, the country’s first university north of 60°. YukonU will deliver over 50 degrees, diplomas, certificates, trades, and university prep programs while continuing the school’s tradition of northern-focused education. “As YukonU, we promise to continue anticipating and meeting your education and research needs, to offer an accessible pathway for every learner, and to contribute to a strong, resilient north,” said YukonU President Karen Barnes. “Thank you to everyone who has supported our journey along the way.” Until in-person celebrations can resume, the school is marking the launch with a renewed website and rebranded social media channels.
