Burman University is a small Christian liberal arts university located in Lacombe, Alberta. As one of Alberta’s publicly funded independent universities, Burman is open to students of all faiths. The university is named after Charles and Leona Burman, the husband and wife team who founded the institution back in 1907.
Burman University is accredited by the Adventist Accrediting Association (AAA) offering Campus Alberta Quality Council (CAQC) approved bachelor degree programs. We offer over 35 major or track choices in bachelor degree programs in our Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (including the School of Business and School of Education) and our Faculty of Science. We are one of 13 Adventist universities in North America, but we are the only Seventh-day Adventist university in Canada. We are sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada (SDACC).
Burman University is located within hereditary indigenous land and acknowledges that the land on which we gather is Treaty 6 territory, established in 1876, the traditional home, and meeting ground for many Indigenous peoples, including the Blackfoot, Dene, Cree, and Métis. Burman University is committed to doing its part to address the legacy of broken promises and rebuild productive, partnership relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples in Central Alberta and across Canada.
