Why We Exist

The University of Lethbridge exists to build a better society.

We do this in six essential ways:

  1. We prepare students for their personal and professional paths.
  2. We develop creative discoverers and independent learners at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
  3. We create, discover, disseminate, and apply knowledge through excellence in basic and applied research of regional and global impact.
  4. We encourage and nurture creative expression.
  5. We pursue community engagement.
  6. We value, encourage, and celebrate the talents and efforts of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
