Our hallways may have been quieter, but our calendars were full. The month of June brought with it many reasons to celebrate. Here are just a few.
Students, faculty and staff marched together in the Edmonton Pride Parade.
We celebrated almost 2,400 graduates at our Spring Convocation ceremonies. The Class of 2018 was our largest ever.
Sarah Paquette, Dustin Stamp and the Blackstone Drum Group led our graduate procession on June 21 in honour of National Indigenous Peoples Day.
We announced a new partnership with Ballet Edmonton (formerly Citie Ballet) that will not only see the city’s only professional ballet company take up residence in Allard Hall’s Triffo Theatre, but will also create a number of new academic and research opportunities for our faculty and students.
In early June, former student of MacEwan University’s Conservatory of Music, Angela Cheng, performed on the nine-foot Muttart Steinway concert grand piano donated to the conservatory 15 years ago. The concert celebrated the foundation’s 65th anniversary.
Faculty and staff showcased our MacEwan pride in this year’s Corporate Challenge, placing seventh in our division, but first for team spirit. Well done!
We had the chance to thank Greg Christenson for his support of the Allard Hall fundraising efforts and his own donation, which the university recognized by naming the pedway between Allard Hall and Robbins Health Learning Centre the Christenson Communities Leadership Link.
President Deborah Saucier thanks faculty and staff for their work over the past academic year at a barbecue on a sunny June afternoon.
One of our seasonal visitors makes a quick stop on the roses outside the Robbins Health Learning Centre.
