The University of Manitoba (U of M, UManitoba, or UM) is a Canadian public research university in the province of Manitoba.[1] Founded in 1877, it is the first university of western Canada.

The university maintains a reputation as a research-intensive post-secondary educational institution,[2] conducting more research annually than any other university in the region; its competitive academic and research programs have also consistently ranked among the top in the Canadian Prairies. Research at the University of Manitoba has accordingly produced various world-renowned contributions, including the creation of canola oil in the 1970s. Likewise, U of M alumni include Nobel Prize recipients, Academy Award winners, Order of Merit recipients, and Olympic medalists, among many others. as of 2019, there have been 99 Rhodes Scholarship recipients from the U of M, more than that of any other university in western Canada.[3][4] Moreover, the university has produced countless government figures, including provincial premiers, Supreme Court justices, and Members of Parliament (MPs).
