As summer started up, we wound down the 2018/19 academic year with joyful celebrations, bittersweet goodbyes and some warm-weather research.
Take a look at June in photos.
Things got creative on campus as MacEwan’s Retail Services welcomed the Alberta Institute of Mentors & Builders of Tomorrow (AIMBOT) to take up temporary residence in retail space in Building 6. There, the Edmonton based not-for-profit organization shared their work with the MacEwan community, displaying elaborate LEGO art pieces and offering workshops to help people bring creative ideas to life.
Children from Early Learning at MacEwan spent an afternoon checking out the LEGO displays, enjoying a workshop with AIMBOT volunteers and building their own masterpieces – a great play-based learning experience.
Roundhouse marked one year of innovation and changemaking.
Warm weather creates opportunities for field research. Here Dr. David Locky and fourth-year biological sciences student Kaitlynn Weisgerber gather invertebrate samples in a northeast Edmonton stormwater pond.
Graduates, faculty and guests filled the Winspear Centre for Spring Convocation. Congratulations to our newest alumni!
We celebrated National Indigenous Peoples Day with a stunning set of dance performances.
Our year-end barbecue was a bittersweet affair – while the university community celebrated another successful academic year, we also said goodbye to outgoing president, Deborah Saucier.
We acknowledge that the land on which we gather in Treaty Six Territory is the traditional gathering place for many Indigenous people. We honour and respect the history, languages, ceremonies and culture of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit who call this territory home.
