The continued economic boom in Alberta, driven mainly by high energy prices, has resulted in multi-billion dollar government fiscal surpluses.[5] This has led to the introduction of Bill 1 by the provincial government, which promises to create a $4.5 billion endowment for Alberta's post-secondary institutions.[6] Given the rosy economic conditions in Alberta, it has been suggested that as the University of Alberta enters its second century it should aim to be one of the top twenty universities in the world by the year 2020.[7][8]

History and Overview

Early history

The University of Alberta was chartered in 1906 with a new University Act, then with the hiring of Henry Marshall Tory in 1907 started operation in 1908 using temporary facilities, while the first building on campus was under construction. In a letter from Henry Marshall Tory to Alexander Cameron Rutherford in early 1906, while he is in the process of setting up McGill University College in Vancouver, Tory writes "If you take any steps in the direction of a working University and wish to avoid the mistakes of the past, mistakes which have fearfully handicapped other institutions, you should start on a teaching basis."[9] The Act creating the university had been passed two years earlier in the first session of the new Legislative Assembly, with Premier Alexander C. Rutherford as its sponsor. See also: 1905 in Canada, other events of 1906, 1907 in Canada and the Timeline of Canadian history. ... Henry Marshall Tory (January 11, 1864 – February 6, 1947) was the first president of the University of Alberta (1908-1929), the first president of the National Research Council (1928-1935) and the first president of Carleton College (1942-1947). ...

Location

The location of the university was to be decided along the same lines as that of Saskatchewan. (The province of Saskatchewan shares the same founding date as Alberta, 1905.) Saskatchewan had to please two competing cities when deciding the location of its capital city and provincial university. Thus, Regina was designated the provincial capital and Saskatoon received the provincial university, the University of Saskatchewan. The same heated wrangling over the location of the provincial capital also took place in Alberta between the cities of Calgary and Edmonton. It was stated that the capital would be north of the North Saskatchewan River and that the university would be in a city south of it.[3] In the end the city of Edmonton became capital and the city just south of the river, Strathcona was granted the university, much to the chagrin of Calgary, for many years to come. In fact, Calgary did not receive a university until 1966. Meanwhile, in 1912 the two cities of Edmonton and Strathcona were amalgamated under the name of the former; Edmonton had thus became both the political and academic capital, at the expense of Calgary. This was just one act in a larger rivalry between the two cities, often called the Battle of Alberta. For other uses, see Saskatchewan (disambiguation). ...

Future campuses

The University of Alberta has future plans for one more Edmonton campus. The South Campus is much larger in terms of land area and located two kilometres to the south of the Main Campus, with a convenient high speed link via Light Rail Transit (projected to open in June 2008). The transit station will be near the current Foote Field and Saville Sports Centre, forming a natural gateway to the new campus architectural model. Preliminary long range development thinking[38] for South Campus implies it may become an expanding academic and research extension of the Main Campus, with rapid development over the next few decades. New architectural guidelines, differing from the Main Campus might encourage a somewhat more consistent, high quality, aesthetic architectural style. As there is a large expanse of land available, significant green space will be incorporated[38] to provide a park like context overall. The Edmonton Transit System, also called ETS, is the public transit service owned and operated by the city of Edmonton, Alberta. ... South Campus Station will be an LRT station operated by Edmonton Transit System in the city of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. ...


Construction

As part of the University of Alberta's expansion,[39] several construction projects have recently been completed on campus, and many more are either in the process of being completed, or are slated to begin in the near future. Expansion of the already extensive facilities of the University of Alberta Hospital is also included in current construction projects. Many of the new buildings recently completed now stand where either older university buildings once stood, or on former parking lots.


Centre for Interdisciplinary Science

One of the major projects underway is the construction of a new $180 million state-of-the-art facility, scheduled for completion in 2010 and to be known as the Centennial Centre for Interdisciplinary Science (CCIS),[40] a facility for interdisciplinary research groups, as well as the Department of Physics. Three buildings - V-Wing (a large one-floor building composed of 10 lecture halls, of which two will remain), the Avadh Bhatia Physics Building (a six-storey building formerly housing the Department of Physics offices and laboratories), and the old Centre for Subatomic Research[41] - have been demolished to make way for CCIS. Many of the classes and labs that were held in these buildings have now been relocated to other new or recently renovated buildings, such as the building now known as the Civil Electrical Building (CEB), which currently holds the Department of Physics offices, undergraduate labs, and classrooms,[42] plus the first phase of the CCIS facilities which presently house the Condensed Matter labs.


The Edmonton Clinic

Construction on a new $909 million multidisciplinary health science facility, surrounding the new Health Science LRT Station, will be starting in early 2008. The Edmonton Clinic (formerly the Health Science Ambulatory Learning Centre) is a joint project with Capital Health, and consists of two separate buildings. Edmonton Clinic South will focus on patient care, while Edmonton Clinic North will house most of the medical and dental clinics and focus on research and education currently held at the university.  Artists rendering of The Edmonton Clinic (T)  Situation on the University of Albertas main campus (B) The Edmonton Clinic, formerly known as the Health Sciences Ambulatory Learning Centre (HSALC), will be a multidisciplinary health science facility located on the University of Alberta main campus, in Edmonton, Alberta, CA...


Health Research Innovation Facility (HRIF)

Two new buildings adjacent to the Heritage Medical Research Centre building on the main campus will contribute to research by allowing the university to hire over 100 additional biomedical and health researchers, this is projected to result in a doubling of research funding by 2014.[43]
