In November 2005, the University of Lethbridge publicly launched the Legacy of Leadership Campaign – the most ambitious campaign in the University's history.
This past year, friends of the University celebrated the conclusion and astounding success made possible by the nearly 5,000 individuals and corporations that collectively contributed more than $35 million. When combined with the $78 million in contributions from the Government of Alberta, the campaign resulted in a $113 million investment in the University of Lethbridge.
The generosity demonstrated during the campaign enabled the U of L to far exceed initial campaign goals and achieve the objectives to increase support for students and provide resources for state-of-the-art facilities, including the 1st Choice Savings Centre for Sport and Wellness and Markin Hall, a building to house the School of Health Sciences and the Faculty of Management. The campaign truly stands as a testament to the commitment that the U of L community, volunteers and donors have towards growing and prospering together. Through their support, students and professors alike will continue to be given new opportunities to engage in creativity, inquiry and discovery.
Today, the U of L is just beginning to see the extraordinary effects that will result from this great legacy of leadership.
