Together we create extraordinary student learning experiences
In 2012, the University of Calgary embarked on a bold path to become one of the top five research-intensive universities in Canada with the launch of the Eyes High strategic direction. The strategy outlines three foundational commitments to guide our collective journey: sharpening the focus on research, enriching the quality and breadth of learning, and connecting with community.
It sparked the establishment of a teaching and learning portfolio in 2012 and, later, the generous $40-million donation from the Taylor Family Foundation that led to the building of the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning.
Since the inauguration of the Taylor Institute in 2016, our campus community’s unparalleled commitment to enriching the quality and breadth of learning has driven expansive growth in teaching and learning programming, research and initiatives.
