Giving Opportunities

Gifts to the Faculty of Arts support our students, faculty and programs, giving them the resources to create and discover. In addition to the Arts Fund, which allows the dean and department chairs to seize opportunities and fund the areas for the greatest impact, the Faculty of Arts has identified the following priority initiatives:

Enhance the student experience
Together we can ensure that Arts students graduate as engaged, global citizens by supporting scholarships and awards, programs that connect students with community organizations, and international and experiential learning opportunities.

Enrich research and creative activities

Philanthropy can enhance research and community engagement at the University of Alberta by establishing an academic position focused on a particular area of research, or supporting a lecture series that provides access to thought leaders and engages in public discourse.​


Revitalize Convocation Hall

Located in the historic Arts Building, Convocation Hall is a beautiful venue. However, renovations are needed to create a learning, teaching and performance space that matches the university's outstanding music program and the high aspirations of UofA students. Take a moment to watch Bill Street the chair of the department of music, walk you through Convocation Hall as it is now and create the vision for the future.




Community Service-Learning



Partnerships with local organizations provide opportunities for CSL students to learn about their community. As a requirement of a course, students do 20 hours of work on a project with a local group, gaining practical experience as they learn.





Arts Beyond the Classroom

Arts is offering students new opportunities to learn beyond the classroom, helping them transition from graduation into the workplace.
