Return to your roots, without leaving home.
That’s the intention of the new University of Saskatchewan Calgary office space, named the USask Calgary Hub, which will provide a space unlike any other for alumni based in Calgary to reconnect, reminisce, and reignite their love of the university.
The Calgary region has for decades been a hub of activity for USask alumni who have forged careers and raised their families here. The region is home to the largest number of USask alumni outside of Saskatchewan, with roughly 10,000 alumni living in the Calgary area.
“Calgary alumni are leaders in business and industry. They are in the nonprofit sector. They are in government. They are in social services. They are leaders in their communities. We really wanted to ensure that we are present for those alumni,” said Dr. Debra Pozega Osburn (PhD), vice-president University Relations, who has led the project since its inception.
The USask Calgary Hub, located in the heart of downtown, is intended to provide that essential connection with USask alumni who live in Calgary, whether they have stayed in touch ever since graduation or want to reconnect with their USask community. The physical space has meeting rooms, gathering areas and professional offices, which will be used to deliver a variety of event and educational opportunities.
“The way the space is used is rooted in how creative we can be. There's a lot we can do and accomplish here,” said Pozega Osburn.
Calgary alumni will have ample opportunities to visit and use the space.
All alumni are invited to stop by if they are looking to conduct business or simply want to sit down and get some work done.
It will also be used as a gathering space for alumni to host meetings and events, and for USask staff to conduct business with alumni and community stakeholders, corporations and agencies.
We look forward to welcoming you to the USask Calgary Hub! For more information, including location, hours of operation, and upcoming events, please visit https://alumni.usask.ca/get-involved/calgary-hub.php.
