Within the past two years, both campuses have made significant moves to better meet the unique needs of students in these areas.

The Calgary campus entered into an agreement with Bow Valley College in 2011, moving into BVC’s newly renovated downtown North Campus. The move builds on the efforts of both institutions to collaborate and provide better access to post-secondary education in Calgary.
Corbin (BMgt ’05) is a University of Lethbridge alumna who graduated with Great Distinction. She achieved immediate success in the business world, working with Venture Communications and for Arlene Dickinson of Dragon’s Den fame.
Her positive experiences at the U of L led her back to the University where she took on a role as a student assistant, eventually becoming a leading academic advisor.
Corbin and her team were recipients of the AUPE President’s Award for Service Excellence in 2011, recognizing their substantial effort in the campus move to Bow Valley College.
Since that time she has been in the role of acting campus manager and will now assume the campus manager position on a permanent basis.
“Dana brings a wealth of U of L experience to her position and we are excited that she is taking the next step with us,” says Acting Assistant Dean, Northern Campuses Lorne Williams. “Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious and will serve her well in this new position.”
EDMONTON -- Nicholas Lang’at

The University recently held the official opening of its new Edmonton campus at Concordia University College of Alberta, giving Edmonton students the campus atmosphere that was not possible at its previous location.
Lang’at comes to the U of L from the University of Alberta where he was most recently the Faculty of Arts governance officer. Previously, Lang’at worked in housing and student services and was instrumental in providing quality service to the U of A student body while fostering a community atmosphere.
His experience will serve him well as the new partnership with Concordia allows the U of L an unprecedented opportunity to better meet the wants and needs of its Edmonton students.
“Nicholas is a definite bridge builder and his skill set will foster positive collaboration with Concordia University College of Alberta,” says Williams. “He brings a diverse background, gained from more than one post-secondary institution, that will serve the Edmonton student base very effectively.”
Lang’at began his post-secondary career as the assistant registrar at Moi University in Kenya where he was charged with recruiting and marketing initiatives.
