Talent is the currency of a great university. When we put together teams of exceptional students, professors and researchers, their accomplishments attract others.
The University of Alberta must continue to recruit and retain top students and faculty from across Canada and around the world — those who combine intellectual muscle with an entrepreneurial spirit, who match lofty expectations with a pragmatic work ethic, who link knowledge to new possibilities to serve humankind.
Exceptional faculty members bring about positive, meaningful and long-lasting change in the world and people’s lives. These committed professionals advance fundamental knowledge and deepen our understanding of a subject, help the university compete for talented educators and researchers, and create new knowledge. They also attract other amazing faculty and exceptional students.
Brilliant students help researchers do brilliant work. Active students engage in their community and with underserved communities across the globe. Motivated students take on undergraduate research initiatives.
When you bring talented faculty and researchers together with the spirit and drive of top students, the possibilities are endless.
By endowing a chair at the University of Alberta, you have the power to bring about positive, meaningful and long-lasting change in the world and in people’s lives.
