Cape Breton University has ambitious plans for this new decade. The Forever CBU Campaign is rooted in our students. It aims to break down barriers to education, increase access to under-represented groups, and enhance student support, infrastructure, and programming.
Our graduates build innovative and creative businesses across all sectors, volunteer their time, and engage in public service.
Together with our alumni, donors, and friends, wherever we go, we build communities that welcome and thrive on CBU’s approach to innovation. The things we accomplish are a model for progress here on our shores and around the world.
Alumni, donors, friends, supporters, you are all part of the CBU family. You have been there in the past. We ask that you are with us in the future. Now & Forever, CBU.
