Welcome from the Provost

Welcome to graduate studies at the University of Calgary! On behalf of the university, I offer my congratulations as you embark on the next phase of your academic journey. You are now part of a special and thriving campus community of approximately 5,400 graduate students in 52 programs.

The University of Calgary is engaged in a bold and ambitious strategic direction for the next five years. The Eyes High strategy defines a path that will see the University of Calgary become a global intellectual hub located in Canada’s most enterprising city. In this spirited, high-quality learning environment students will thrive in programs made rich by research and hands-on experiences. By our 50th anniversary in 2016, we will be one of Canada’s top five research universities, fully engaging the communities we both serve and lead.

Our graduate students are engaged in realizing this vision and play a critical role in advancing the goals of the institution. We look forward to your contributions.

Whether you are a returning student or someone who is new to our university, I hope that you will take full advantage of the opportunities offered by the university to support your studies and research. These include the activities and services offered by the Graduate Students’ Association, who are keenly interested in helping ensure you have a wonderful experience while you are here.

I wish you great success as you work towards the completion of your graduate program, and look forward to meeting you at some point on campus.

Dru Marshall
Provost and Vice-President (Academic)
