Imagine a world where you sign on to your computer in the morning and have access to every University service you currently use online, including all elements of The Bridge, Moodle, e-mail and your personal timetable.
Imagine being greeted with messages that pertain only to you and your position in the University, to be linked to your interests and clubs and to be able to customize your personal dashboard to reflect your University personality.
That day is coming in the form of the new University portal system, and it promises to revolutionize the way in which faculty, staff and students interact online.
The University of Lethbridge achieved recognition from a number of national ranking agencies in 2012, thanks in no small part to the support of more than 2,000 donors who contributed nearly $10 million in support of the institution.
Recognized as one of Canada’s leading research-intensive universities by national bodies such as Maclean’s and Re$earch Infosource, the U of L has built an outstanding record of research academic performance in less than half a century. This achievement has been aided by the support of a strong donor base that continues to grow each year.
It’s not quite speed dating, but the idea is similar.
On Friday, March 22, the Office of Research & Innovation Services (ORIS) team will host its first Community/University Research Exchange (CURE) event where they are looking to do some relationship building between community groups and University of Lethbridge researchers.
Researchers often experience barriers when trying to involve external partners in their research programs.
The CURE event aims to reduce those barriers by bringing community partners and U of L researchers together to talk with, and learn from, each other at a one-day open house.
