The University continues to add to its list of key dates:
Formerly known as the Vancouver School of Applied and Decorative Arts, our institution was officially established on October 1, 1925.
In 1978, it was designated a provincial institute before moving to Granville Island in 1980.
A second building on Granville Island opened in 1994, and the following year, Emily Carr was granted authority to offer bachelor degrees and honorary degrees.
In 2001, Finning International donated a parcel of land to four institutions - Emily Carr, SFU, UBC and BCIT - in what is now known as the Great Northern Way Campus.
In 2006, Emily Carr launched a Master of Applied Arts degree, and opened Intersections Digital Studios, the home of Research within the University, significantly expanding the university's research capabilities.
In 2008, the school was granted university status and in 2013, the Master of Design Degree was launched.
The University officially broke ground in 2015 for a new state-of-the-art campus at Great Northern Way, which opened in September 2018.
