Public Lectures

Lougheed College Lectures

The Lougheed College Lecture Series offers all U of A students and members of the public the opportunity to hear from some of today’s most inspirational, influential, and innovative visiting scholars and practitioners of leadership. These free evening sessions have featured guests including Shawna Pandya, Todd Babiak, Kim Katrin and Tiq Milan, Mark Tewksbury, and more.

The lectures this year are organized around the theme of ‘what’s next for Alberta?’ With a new provincial government and an upcoming federal election, intensifying pressure to address climate change and diversify Alberta’s economy, a moral obligation to take up the TRC’s calls to action, and a series of transformations—technological, generational and organizational—the series invites people to grapple with pressing issues and debates. Engage with us on dynamics that are already impacting us and will shape our futures.
