University of Alberta

To celebrate the history and heritage of the University of Alberta, a special website was created through a partnership between the Heritage Community Foundation and University of Alberta Learning Services. It is an online, multimedia journey through one hundred years of documentation, photographs, video and audio clips, interactive timelines, and memories recounting the story of how the University of Alberta has enriched and changed the world. One hundred years later, as we celebrated our Centenary in 2008, our university community spent a year reflecting on our history of graduates and achievements and on our growth over the years into a formidable institution close to 40,000 students strong, into one of the top research universities in North America and one of top 100 public universities in the world. We searched long and hard to find a contemporary phrase that would capture the experience—the spirit—of the University of Alberta today. In the end, we discovered that the time-honoured words of Henry Marshall Tory continue to express what centers our daily work—students, faculty, administrators, staff, and alumni alike—as we pursue "whatsoever things are true." As the University of Alberta enters the second decade of the 21st century, world events continue to present us with an unfolding sequence of challenges, opportunities, and threats—just as it has in every decade past. Remembering daily that "uplifting the whole people" is the University of Alberta's raison d'etre binds our community in a united desire to improve livability, sustainability, and hope for all citizens of our local and global community.

The University of Alberta is home to Canada’s largest academic staff association and leads the country with 38 academic staff who have received national 3M Teaching Fellowships, Canada’s highest award for excellence in undergraduate university teaching. ### Teaching excellence at the U of A reflects a campus-wide focus on teaching and learning, which begins with class sizes that are among the smallest at major research universities in Canada. ### The Global Education Program inspires and cultivates students as the next generation of leaders prepared to tackle critical issues facing the globe. ### Our signature event, International Week, is the University’s largest annual extra-curricular educational event and is the most extensive event of its kind on a Canadian campus. The University and Edmonton communities are able to explore a host of global issues through more than 50 events including lectures, workshops, exhibits and cultural performances.
