Building a Community of Inspiring Lights

A university founded by citizens, our connection to community is core to who we are. 


Proudly located on the traditional territory of the Blackfoot people, Indigenous culture is woven into the fabric of the University of Lethbridge. These strong local roots ground us but our community is truly global, and we continue to expand our reach. Each year, more than 8,900 students from approximately 100 countries call our campuses in Lethbridge and Calgary home, and our more than 47,000 alumni are making important contributions in communities around the world. 

With your support, we will build a stronger, more engaged community of leaders, innovators, thinkers and doers, making Lethbridge a destination to be recognized.



Sarah Russell (BA ’19) crossed the convocation stage to become the first member of her family to earn a university degree. Now, she’s telling her story in her home community and adding her perspective to the creation of a new program – EleV – that has the potential to transform the lives of the next generation of Blackfoot youth. A unique and innovative partnership between the Blackfoot Confederacy, the Mastercard Foundation and the University of Lethbridge will support and enable Indigenous youth to achieve their goals and become leaders in their communities.
