Tap into a community of pioneers, innovators and explorers

Throughout their education, UCalgary students are instilled with a passion for serving and leading in their communities. We offer many ways to prepare students for life beyond the campus, such as volunteering, on-campus work and other activities that promote active citizenship and community engagement. Our experiential learning focus shines in our commitment to co-op, internship or practicum experiences that support a student's professional growth.
