Sports Wall of Fame

The purpose of the Sports Wall of Fame is to bring together the past, present and future leaders in university and community sport by recognizing those that have led (alumni inductees) and those that will lead in the future (current student athletes, coaches and staff). It is through this sharing and passing of the torch that our university athletics program will continue to grow and develop outstanding contributors to our local, national and international community.

Each year a select group of individuals are added on to the University of Alberta Sports Wall of Fame in honour of those athletes and builders who significantly contributed to the University of Alberta sports programs. Inductees are nominated and chosen by a selection committee made up of senior University and community leaders, Golden Bears and Pandas alumni, and members of the Green and Gold Athletic Society.

The contributions made by the Sports Wall of Fame members to the tradition of success of Golden Bears and Pandas Athletics, inspires our current Golden Bears and Pandas student athletes, coaches and staff in their continued pursuit of excellence.

Opened in 2015, thanks to the generous contributions of Sports Wall of Fame member Maury Van Vliet, the new Hall of Fame, which houses the Sports Wall of Fame is adorned with inductee plaques, championship pictures and an interactive touch screen, providing a look back into the history of athletics at the University of Alberta.
