Teaching and learning at UCalgary

UCalgary is a global intellectual hub, located in Canada’s most enterprising city. We are creating opportunities for the future with rich and innovative learning experiences, grounded in scholarship, curiosity and diversity.

UCalgary is driven by our Eyes High strategy to enrich the quality and breadth of learning, to educate students to become community-builders and supported by the Academic Plan, 2018-2022.

Through leadership and innovation, quality of instruction, relevant curriculum, and research and experiential learning, UCalgary is a focal point for teaching and learning excellence, led by the Vice-Provost (Teaching and Learning).
