It’s not quite speed dating, but the idea is similar.
On Friday, March 22, the University of Lethbridge 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 U of L 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.
University of Lethbridge Pronghorns men's basketball player Julian Spear Chief-Morris has been named Subway Pronghorn Athlete of the Week and Canada West Male Athlete of the Week following his performance this past weekend.

The phrase “one must eat well in order to learn well,” has never been truer than it is today.
Twenty years ago, graduate students at the University of Alberta launched the first campus food bank and today there are more than 70 student food banks nationwide. The University of Lethbridge Students’ Union (ULSU) is proud to be the host of one of those food banks.
The University of Lethbridge has formalized linkages with two Ukrainian research institutions to perform collaborative research in the area of occupational and environmental effects of ionizing radiation.
Earlier today, Vice-President (Research) Dan Weeks signed, on behalf of the U of L, a memorandum of understanding with the R.E. Kavetsky Institute of Experimental Pathology, Oncology and Radiobiology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the National Research Centre for Radiation Medicine of the Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine (RCRM).
Research performed under the agreement will include studying the epigenetic effects* of ionizing radiation on the workers at the Chernobyl power plants, including resultant cancer occurrences.
The University of Lethbridge continually offers opportunities for personal and professional growth and the Department of Information Technology is getting on board with a series of Microsoft Office Suite sessions in the coming months.
Beginning in February, faculty and staff at the U of L will be eligible to participate in the first of these sessions, Entry Level Excel.
This introductory course will be offered over the course of four weeks, with two-hour sessions each Thursday afternoon from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in E640. The first session is Thursday, Feb. 21, followed by sessions on Feb. 28, Mar. 7 and Mar. 14.
University of Lethbridge researcher Dr. Olga Kovalchuk is the recipient of a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Chair dedicated to examining the effects occupational radiation exposure has on men and women working in nuclear industries.
Canada is home to one of the highest concentrations of nuclear activity in the world. Nearly 40,000 people work in Canada's nuclear industry, while 800,000 individuals work in nuclear sectors worldwide. The number of females working in these industries has increased over time, making this project much more critical.
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.
