The Université du Québec à Rimouski (commonly referred to as UQAR) is a public university located in Rimouski, Quebec, Canada. Founded in 1969 as a satellite campus of the Université du Québec, UQAR provides access to higher education for the people of Bas-Saint-Laurent and the Gaspé Peninsula. It is the furthest north of any university in Québec. While it offers a wide variety of academic programs, UQAR is particularly well known for its multidisciplinary research in marine science, regional development, and nordicity. Approximately 6,500 students attend UQAR. While most UQAR students are from eastern Québec, the university boasts a burgeoning international population, mostly drawn from the countries of the Francophonie. Over 40,000 students have graduated from UQAR since it opened in 1969
