The next steps

USask adopts three new pillars to add to a solid foundation

For the record

Three former USask athletes have one thing in common — records that probably won’t be broken for a long time. Basketball forward Sarah Crooks, soccer keeper Samantha Simpson and football quarterback Brent Schneider all had phenomenal USask careers and hold records that have stood the test of time. We talk to them about their accomplishments.

Home, sweet home

For the first time in more than two years, our USask alumni and supporters finally came together again on Sept. 9 to celebrate Homecoming 2022.

USask research is for the birds

The legacy of a conservationist lives on through her $2.3-million gift and allows USask researchers and students to soar.

The resilience of health-care workers

When everyone was told to stay home, they were putting on their masks. Deemed essential and tasked with the daunting responsibility of keeping their community safe, USask alumni health-care workers have proven their resiliency throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Changing the narrative

The racism Lua Gibb (LLB'05) endured as a young girl set a fire in her belly. She vowed to stand up for Indigenous people so no other little girls would endure the same prejudice she did.

Taking over the airwaves

With the world cooped up in their homes this past year, many people turned to podcasts to curb the quiet loneliness and negative impacts of isolation. Here are three alumni-hosted and produced podcasts to add to your playlist.

CLS combats COVID-19

The Canadian Light Source (CLS), which sits on the eastern edge of the campus at the University of Saskatchewan, is a highly sought-after advanced research tool used by groundbreaking scientists and top academics from across Canada and around the world.

Be what the world needs

USask has been a world-leading university for years. It's time to let the world know about it.

Working at a distance, innovating together

As many companies and organizations closed their doors in March 2020, a large portion of the population headed from the boardroom to their home offices, including faculty and staff at USask.

Sustainability, at your fingertips

Pela phone cases are one of the only cases in the world that are compostable. The innovative invention came from USask’s own Jeremy Lang (BSA’00), a graduate who has a thirst for problem solving and knack for environmental sustainability.
