We are a bold and ambitious institution that aims to become one of Canada’s top five research universities, grounded in innovative learning and teaching and fully integrated with the community of Calgary, by our 50th anniversary in 2016. As we continue along the exciting journey outlined in our Eyes High strategic direction, we are enhancing our impact on our city, our province and society at large. For those of us who work here, this means an incredible opportunity to change the world for the better.
But we like to play just as hard as we work. Here are a few of the things that put the “life” in “work/life balance”.
Our goal is to offer a work environment that promotes the health and wellness of our employees and also supports them in their personal lives. To that end, we have comprehensive benefit programs, a variety of opportunities and supports in place for learning, and an inclusive Employee and Family Assistance Program offering a wide variety of immediate and confidential support to employees and their family - just to name a few. For more information on all that we have to offer, access the specific staff pages listed below:
We are located in Calgary, a city of innovators and entrepreneurs. It’s a place where creative thinking and hard work are rewarded, reflecting the values we hold dear. Calgary is one of the world’s cleanest cities and one of the best cities in Canada in which to raise a family. Worldwide, it is ranked the 5th most livable city and 2nd for levels of prosperity. The people who live here are amongst Canada’s most educated and together, form the nation’s 4th most diverse urban population. Just a stone’s throw from the majestic Rocky Mountains and hosting a growing number of world-class restaurants and cultural events, Calgary offers a great living experience, including access to the most extensive urban pathway and bikeway network in North America.
Different voices at the table are critical for a strong and dynamic university. Diversity, equity and inclusion are deeply valued at the university and are integral to the safety and wellness of our campus community. The Office of Diversity, Equity and Protected Disclosure is a dedicated resource that handles individual and institutional issues, and works to ensure a welcoming space for students, faculty and staff through advanced education, research and counsel. Events like Diversity Week, Pluralism Week and resources through the Faith and Spirituality Centre, the Native Centre, Student Accessibility Services, the Q Centre, and the Women’s Resource Centre contribute to a campus that is full of different ideas and spaces for everyone.
We joke about how often we say “park-like setting”, but that’s because it’s true – tons of green spaces, trees and ponds make for a beautiful main campus. And it’s larger than Calgary’s entire downtown. There are plenty of amenities and world-class attractions on our main campus, and easy access to transit for when you want to venture further afield.
Our other campuses, located both near (e.g. Downtown campus) and far (e.g. Doha, Qatar), offer a number of amenities and great surroundings for employees to enjoy.
Part of the university working experience includes access to a mix of professional and personal learning and growth opportunities. Our Tuition Support Program is just one way we support our employees and their family’s life-long learning goals. The options are virtually endless - everything from business seminars to photography, languages to cuisine, and interior design to literature. Whether you take advantage of programs in management and leadership offered through our human resources team or drop in on a lecture, opportunities for learning abound.
Each year, students, faculty and guest artists present over 200 concerts and staged performances at the School of Creative and Performing Arts. Our events comprise a dazzling range of movement, music, emotions and ideas. With so many dance, drama and music performances to experience, we know that there is something for everyone to enjoy. Learn more about upcoming events.

Sweat it out at the gym before work. Take a breath at lunch with yoga. Release the tension with a game of racquetball at the end of the day. Hundreds of programs are offered by Active Living, the Outdoor Centre, Rehabilitation Program for People with Disabilities, Intramural Sports, Sports Clubs, and Child and Youth programs.
