The 50 Voices Project is sponsored by the Centre for Oral History and Tradition to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the University of Lethbridge in 2017.  The project will see the presentation of audio clips and photographs extracted from new interviews and from the 1st Generation Oral History Project of people from all walks of life that contributed to the success of the University.  Students, faculty and staff will conduct project work.  The oral history vignettes will be unveiled on the COHT website in 2017.  The full audio interviews, digital transcripts and photographs will be made available at the University Archives and on their website for future research, and as valuable records of the history of the University.
