Advancing Alberta

President's Message

David TurpinThe University of Alberta is this province’s foundational post-secondary institution. Created by the first act of the Alberta legislature in 1906, it contributes to—and indeed, has helped to build—the vibrant and prosperous communities that define our province today. The U of A’s greatest contribution? People. U of A alumni—bringing skills, creativity and energy to every sector and community in our society. U of A researchers—driving and diversifying Alberta’s thriving economy and healthy communities with discoveries, scholarship and creative activity. U of A students—engaging the world, challenging old orthodoxies and setting the stage for Alberta’s future. This is today’s U of A—advancing Alberta’s prosperity, influence and leadership, locally, nationally and globally.
