Donation to Humanities 101

One of the Friend’s goals is to connect the community to the University. In support of this goal, we are proud to donate $5000 to the Faculty of Arts Community Service-Learning to contribute to the next two years of their program Humanities 101 (please read more about the program here).

Due to the pandemic, the Big Cheque was presented on May 27, 2020 via Zoom to Dr. David Peacock, Diane McKen and Lisa Prins. Most of the Friend’s board members were able to attend too.

This financial support comes at a critical time since many school programs have moved delivery of courses online and yet many HUM 101 students do not have internet and/or computers or tablets.

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
