2019 Henry Marshall Tory Lecture

The Friends of the University of Alberta is pleased to welcome back 2015 U of A Honorary Degree recipient Chantal Hébert to present the Fall 2019 Tory Lecture. Ms. Hebert is a highly respected Canadian journalist and political commentator. Her knowledge, insights and wit are clearly evident in her numerous articles and as a regular on the CBC political panel ‘At Issue’. We are honoured to have her join us and speak on the topic of Canada’s post-election landscape: a harbinger of turbulence to come on the unity front. She is certain to fuel engaging conversations with her perspectives on what the current landscape means for all Canadians.

November 26, 2019, Doors at 6:30pm, Lecture at 7pm

TELUS Centre, University of Alberta, 87 Ave and 111 St

We look forward to seeing you,
Friends of the University of Alberta

2019 U School Donation

Supporting the Friend’s primary goal to connect the community to the University, we are proud to donate $10,000 to U School. On May 8, 2019, Friends President Kate Freeman, with Allen Snart and Ken Regan, presented the big cheque to Derek Roy Brenneis (Director University of Alberta Senate) and Melania Woloszyn (USchool Program Lead).

On June 4, 2019, a few of the Friends attended the USchool convocation. The children were very excited and hopefully some of them will be future University of Alberta students (and Friends!). One of the early USchool attendees is in his third year and he spoke to the children of the opportunities in front of them.
