During this unprecedented time of physical distancing, the need to remain connected has never been greater. We, as a University of Lethbridge family, will continue to shine and we will get through this together.

Giving Tuesday Now is a global generosity movement that’s looking for ways to help communities in response to COVID-19. uLethbridge decided to flip the script and rename the day Thank You Tuesday to celebrate those who support our students during this crisis and beyond. Follow along on social media as our students, faculty and staff say THANK YOU to our uLethbridge community near and far.
They are our alumni, our family, our friends and our neighbours.
Each evening, let’s come together as a uLethbridge family and show our appreciation for the front-line heroes with a 7 p.m. cheer. Join the nightly international celebration and share a photo of you honking, clanging, ringing and cheering for the front-line heroes who are working so hard to keep us safe. #ulethcares
