Welcome to the University of Calgary, a diverse community of over 35,000 students, faculty and staff who share a commitment to excellence. Together, our university family has grown into one of Canada’s top comprehensive research universities, with five campuses that are both picturesque and sustainable.
Our students come from across Alberta and Canada and from around the world, in search of an exceptional student experience. We create a supportive learning environment by allowing our students the opportunity, ability and responsibility to discover new knowledge, innovate and unleash their potential. This personal growth can only happen within a campus culture that is inclusive, curiosity-driven and respectful, where leadership from all is encouraged and enabled.
Under the guiding vision of our 2018-23 Academic and Research Plans, UCalgary students will explore, take risks, build resiliency and develop a growth mindset. This student experience is fueled by over 250 academic programs, as well as international options, experiential learning and research opportunities. The 95% undergraduate retention rate and 91.1% graduate employment rate speak volumes about our engaged students and their success following graduation.
Collectively, UCalgary is prioritizing people, connecting communities and driving innovation. Thank you for joining us on this bold and exciting course to make a positive impact on a personal level and a societal level.
I look forward to the many new milestones that we will reach together in the coming years.
