Who We Are
At the University of Lethbridge, we believe every person is born with the ability to shine.
Our motto, Fiat Lux – let there be light, represents the heart of our university. It speaks to the force of will, the spirit of determination and the desire to achieve that lives within all of us.
We support the notion that individuals should embrace knowledge and by doing so, will develop the necessary skills, strength and elasticity to excel in our world today and tomorrow.
We are a comprehensive university that is experiential and diverse. Grounded in the ideals of liberal education, we advance knowledge through research and creative achievement.
We are committed to offering students an enriching experience. We are a university that reaches beyond our walls and we encourage our students to do the same.
We are a place of learning, critical thinking and intellectual exchange — a place of reason, enquiry and personal responsibility.
We are a community built around people. Founded on traditional Blackfoot land, we provide an inspired setting that is a destination for scholars and students alike.
We are Alberta’s Destination University.
