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 6,019 full and part time graduate students in over 55 programs.
The University of Calgary is currently undergoing a major transformation, invigorated by the Eyes High Vision. This vision 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 graduate students will thrive in programs made rich by research and hands-on experiences. The University of Calgary will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2016 and by then, we will be one of Canada’s top five research universities, fully engaging the communities we both serve and lead.
We are happy you have joined us and our journey! Our graduate students play a critical role in advancing the goals of the institution. We highly value graduate student engagement and contributions—and look forward to facilitating your potential while you are here.
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.
