Canadian university

The University of Alberta is a public research university located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It was founded in 1908 by Alexander Cameron Rutherford,[1] the first premier of Alberta, and Henry Marshall Tory,[2] the university's first president. It was enabled through the Post-secondary Learning Act.[3]

The university is a major economic driver in Alberta. Its impact on Alberta's economy is estimated at $12.3 billion annually, or five per cent of the province's gross domestic product.[4]


In 2020, Kathleen Lowrey, an associate professor of anthropology, was informed that her contract for an administrative role would not be renewed. Lowrey a self-described "gender-critical feminist" says she was dismissed over her views that transgender identity doesn’t trump biological sex for policy decisions, as some segments of the LGBTQ movement do. She expressed these views in one of her classes.[5]
