Every day, we set out to challenge the very notion of time by solving problems that don’t exist yet. Walk the hallways, the classrooms and our labs and you can feel the energy created by those discovering their purpose.

We are excited to share with you our vision for our new brand. As we continue to build the university of tomorrow, it is not enough to keep pace with our competitors. As one university, we must be bold and competitive. We must transform our collective aspirations into reality today.

Bill Flanagan
President and Vice-Chancellor

Together we can inspire one another to start living out our shared purpose today. Right here at the University of Alberta.
