Office of the President

Dr. Alan DavisYour browsing of Kwantlen Polytechnic University's site has brought you to the Office of the President's page.


You may be a current or prospective student, a parent, an interested member of the public, or a colleague in government, business, research, health, education or the community.

My role, supported by the staff in the office and the entire University team, is to lead the institution, and to advocate on its behalf so that it can achieve its important mission.

As the largest of BC’s new teaching-focused universities and the only polytechnic university in Canada, we provide a unique array of programs and services that link students to their careers, their communities, and to their lives beyond the classroom. While serving primarily students in the Metro Vancouver regions south of the Fraser River, we also attract students from all over BC, Canada, and around the world.

Kwantlen Polytechnic University is no ivory tower. It is open, innovative and inspiring. It proudly and tirelessly strives to do the best for its students, alumni, employees, donors, business and industry partners, and our local and global communities.

Please let me know if there is a specific comment or idea that you would like to share. I started here as President on September 1, 2012, so we may as well be learning more about the University together.

President and Vice-Chancellor
