Together, we will empower students with new opportunities
A student’s time at the university is full of possibility.
They get a glimpse of their potential. They feel the momentum of the university. They begin to move toward their goals.
Even as they feel exhilarated, pressures can arise and overwhelm them.
We know post-secondary education is mentally and emotionally challenging. We know the stressors in the lives of students can be underestimated.
The university is committed to seeing our students succeed. From the first day on campus to the moment of pride when they cross the convocation stage — and every moment in between — we are here to support them.
Programs such as UCalgaryStrong and others promote personal wellness, leadership and engagement among students. We give students the opportunity to stretch beyond their comfort levels while unleashing their full potential. We ensure that our students know they are not alone.
The recently launched Campus Mental Health Strategy empowers students with new opportunities and the support they need to enhance their academic experience.
