Join in festivities at annual holiday celebration and special presidential farewell Dec. 3
With the holiday season quickly approaching, it is nearly time for the annual holiday celebration, an event that brings our university community together to celebrate our key accomplishments over the past year.
Hosted on Dec. 3 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the lobby of the EEEL building, this year’s celebration is open to all students, faculty and staff.
In addition to kicking off the holiday festivities, this year’s event will also be an opportunity for our campus community to recognize the legacy of President and Vice-Chancellor Elizabeth Cannon, who will be completing her tenure as president at the end of December.
“Over the past eight and a half years, President Cannon has been an inspirational leader and a champion for our community,” says Jill Wyatt, chair of the university’s Board of Governors.
“Through her dedication and commitment to the Eyes High vision, she has transformed the University of Calgary into one of Canada’s most recognized, dynamic institutions of teaching, learning, research and innovation.”
Celebration offers last chance to support 2018 United Way campaign
Following last year’s successful campaign, this year we set our sights higher with a new fundraising goal of $575,000 for the 2018 United Way campaign.
Get in the spirit of giving and stop by the United Way fundraising table during the holiday celebration to make a donation or purchase Give ‘n Thanks stars, a thoughtful way to recognize a friend or colleague while contributing to the campaign.
RSVP today for the annual holiday celebration on Dec. 3 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the EEEL lobby.
