Together, we will create entrepreneurial thinkers
We are a world leader among young universities, located in Canada’s most enterprising city.
The next generation of entrepreneurs is emboldened by our energetic vision to become Canada’s entrepreneurial university – a centre of business and academic excellence that fuses ideas with action.
Our entrepreneurial and innovative spirit ignites enterprising solutions. Our graduate and undergraduate students gain a vigorous approach to problem solving that well serves communities. We enable them to become inventive, effective and conscientious planners and leaders.
The new Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning demonstrates our willingness to be in the vanguard of entrepreneurial thinking, teaching and learning. It’s a fresh approach and the first of its kind in Canada.
We are enabling thinkers to become entrepreneurs and inspiring business people to spark positive changes with lively and effective concepts.
Energize: The Campaign for Eyes High — our most ambitious fundraising campaign to date — closes in June 2020. Get ready to be a part of our history!

It brings the university and the community together as a catalyst for positive change. Ideas are forged by passionate innovators at the university and activated with communities to empower and enhance them.
Formed in 2010 as a partnership between our University Technologies International (UTI) and Calgary Technologies Inc. (CTI), Innovate Calgary promotes progress.
Fueling human-rights research
Dennis Sumara, dean of the Werklund School of Education, is turning a lifelong passion into a gift that will make an impact for generations to come.
“As a classroom teacher and, later, a university professor, I worried about students who were made to feel they did not belong, that they did not fit in. For those students, school became an unsafe place. My legacy gift to fund human-rights education research supports my belief that university teacher-education programs play a big role in the development of leaders who learn how to make everyone feel included and valued in our schools and communities.”
