The call to Do Great Things goes back to the founding of our university.

In 1905, Henry Marshall Tory, the first University of Alberta President, had just visited the new province of Alberta. He wrote back to his wife, “There is wine in the air, a feeling of excitement; of expectancy.”

He made a bold prediction: Great things are bound to happen.

Since then, the UAlberta alumni community has grown to more than 290,000 strong, making a difference around the world.
