This type of work brings together UCalgary researchers across disciplines to collaborate on addressing common issues using novel and holistic approaches. These research partnerships combine diverse expertise, which has great potential to yield innovative adaptations that better address complex scientific and social challenges.

Teaching, learning and student experience
Sustainable Development Goals Alliance
The Sustainable Development Goals Alliance (SDGA) is a UCalgary student group that is the result of a collaborative partnership between various sustainability-related student clubs. It works closely with students, clubs and faculty to provide programs, events and support for our campus community to raise awareness and action for the 17 SDGs. The SDGA also collaborates with other universities and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network. Recently, this group launched the Sustainability Leadership Innovation Program, in which students are matched with mentors and seed funding to transform ideas into action to improve campus sustainability.

The Global Community Challenge YYC brings together students from all over the world to identify potential solutions to today’s most complex challenges. Working with local organizations in the Calgary community that have international reach, this experiential learning experience persisted despite the pandemic, drawing 130 students from 23 universities in 13 countries to collaborate on addressing pressing issues identified by their community partners.
