By supporting research that is aligned with the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals, UCalgary will help address the increasingly complex global challenges of poverty, health, climate action and economic growth. We will bring our strengths in transdisciplinary collaboration, community engagement and innovation to these challenges, and contribute to a more equitable, safe and sustainable world.
At the University of Calgary, we recognize the pressing and interconnected social-ecological challenges facing local and global societies. Universities have a responsibility to prepare graduates to be critically aware and ready to address our greatest societal challenges. At UCalgary we develop future-focused programs to prepare students across all disciplines to be innovators and leaders in sustainability. Through innovation in teaching and learning in the classroom, and hands-on experiential learning on real-world challenges in our community, we are empowering the change leaders of tomorrow.
