Here are this week's updates for the U of A community:

Alberta's Relaunch Strategy and the U of A

Last week the Government of Alberta announced its long-term Relaunch Strategy for the province. Although the province's relaunch strategy has resulted in no immediate changes for the U of A, you can learn more about how the U of A will be working to abide by the relaunch strategy by visiting The Alberta Relaunch Strategy & the U of A webpage

ONEcard and Parking Services Online

The Parking Services and ONEcard offices on all campuses are now closed, but support is still available online. Manage your Parking Account and your ONEcard Account virtually, or send an email to parking@ualberta.ca or onecard@ualberta.ca.

Laptop Lending Program for Students

The Office of the Dean of Students is offering a Chromebook lending program for those students who do not have access to the technology they need to complete their courses remotely. You can learn more about the program by contacting doslend@ualberta.ca.

Students interested in the lending program should complete the online request form.   

Spring Convocation

On June 12, the U of A community will come together to celebrate the Spring Class of 2020 in a virtual convocation ceremony that will be hosted online at ualberta.ca. More details will be coming in the next few weeks. Keep checking the Convocation website for updates. #UAlberta20.
