Shad ULethbridge

University of Lethbridge

Oki, and welcome to the University of Lethbridge. Our University’s Blackfoot name is Iniskim, meaning Sacred Buffalo Stone. The University is located in traditional Blackfoot Confederacy territory. We honour the Blackfoot people and their traditional ways of knowing in caring for this land, as well as all Indigenous Peoples who have helped shape and continue to strengthen our University community.

Positioned in the heart of Southern Alberta, ULethbridge offers a unique educational experience that combines world-class teaching, vibrant research, and a welcoming community. With picturesque landscapes, the campus is nestled in the coulees against the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, creating an inspiring environment for intellectual exploration.

One of Canada’s top-ranked universities and leading research institutions, the University of Lethbridge is a community of inspiring lights united by one common purpose — students. Their education. Their future. And the limitless ability they have to make an important difference in the world. Our motto, Fiat Lux – let there be light – refers to the illumination that comes from research and learning.

#1 Medical and Science Grants (Primarily Undergraduate category, Maclean’s University Rankings, 2023)

ULethbridge has built an outstanding record of research achievement. Our tradition of excellence has been achieved by the collective achievements of our researchers and fostered by our commitment to support high-impact research across disciplines. These researchers are also our teachers, who bring their research into the classroom and actively engage students in research opportunities. We are large enough to deliver world-class teaching and research, yet small enough to provide personalized research experiences for students starting at the undergraduate level. By participating in the investigative journey with some of the world’s most accomplished researchers, student’s learning goes beyond the theoretical to the practical.

With the opening of Science Commons in 2019, the University is home to Canada’s most advanced facility for science education and research. The Science Commons will serve as the primary space for your exploration of STEAM in July 2024! After all, where you learn, shapes how you learn.

Take a virtual tour of ULethbridge.
