The University of Lethbridge is excited to launch a new website today (www.ulethbridge.ca/research) that will serve as the public face of research at the U of L.
“As one of Canada’s most influential research institutions, we are home to world-renowned researchers, and we are fostering the next generation of researchers and innovators,” says
Dr. Daniel Weeks, U of L vice-president (research). “With this website, we are thrilled to be able to showcase the calibre of research that takes place at the U of L with audiencesaround the world.”
Aimed at an external audience (academia, government, industry, media, students and members of the general public), the new website will raise the profile of research at the U of L through digital storytelling. The site will feature stories on faculty and students while highlighting research news and connecting users to U of L faculty members via the Expert’s Database.
“We now have a tool to effectively engage stakeholders and tell the U of L’s research story,” says Weeks. “But this is just the beginning. The site will evolve as fresh content is continually added.”
Websites for the Office of Research and Innovation Services and the Vice-President (Research) can be found off the new site, www.ulethbridge.ca/research, in the top navigation bar.
“This is an exciting time for research at our university,” says Weeks. “We are incredibly proud to share the world-class work that is happening here with our stakeholders and with communities around the world.”
