Where once was vast and open prairie now lives one of Canada's top-ranked research universities.

The University of Lethbridge exists as it does today thanks to the determined and forward-thinking citizens who believed southern Alberta warranted its own university.  Their vision, tenacity and ability to unite to make the impossible possible have lived at the heart of the University for more than five decades.
