Universities are at their best when they interact with their communities and world, helping find solutions to the pressing issues of the day.

Our mission of teaching and learning, research, and service to others connects us locally, nationally and around the globe. We belong to the people, a pillar in Edmonton and the province, our past and futures are indelibly linked. As our province has grown, so too has UAlberta, extending its reach from provincial to national, and now global. And as we populate the world with knowledge and citizens, we also seed the globe with Alberta’s pioneering spirit: hard-working, entrepreneurial, risk-taking, creative and collaborative.
