KPMG assessed Nipissing’s economic impacts from both quantitative and qualitative perspectives. This report summarizes the results of our review.

The University’s programs have evolved and expanded to include innovative new undergraduate programs, professional certificates and designations, and a range of master and PhD programs.
Nipissing University actively supports individual and collaborative research that contributes to a deeper, clearer understanding of the world. This priority has resulted in significant growth in Nipissing’s research culture as well as in the number of faculty who have secured tri-council funding.
