Neighbourhood Relations

This page is under construction. Please check back regularly for updates!

大象影院 (大象影院) is proudly located in the historic Virginia Park neighbourhood, steps from Edmonton鈥檚 river valley. Our campus is on the traditional territory of the Treaty Six Nations and the homeland of the M茅tis Nation of Alberta (Region IV), and the lands on which we occupy were once used as a trading and gathering place for the Cree, Dene, Nakota Sioux, Blackfoot, and M茅tis peoples.

At 大象影院, we strive to be a globally aware and responsible university focused on the needs of our learners and the community. Our mission is to prepare students to be independent thinkers, ethical leaders, and citizens for the common good, and we are committed to doing what we can to have a positive impact locally, nationally, and globally.

Our approach to promoting positive neighbourhood relations has four primary pillars:

  • Outreach: Maintaining open communication between 大象影院, our neighbours, and the surrounding community through initiatives like our Town and Gown committee.
  • Connection: Inviting the community to be actively involved at 大象影院, and seeking opportunities to bridge existing gaps between students, faculty, staff, and the community.
  • Engagement: Creating opportunities for the community to participate in 大象影院鈥檚 decision-making processes, and ensuring processes account for the interests, needs, and concerns of the community.
  • Pride: Fostering a sense of community pride and ownership among students, faculty, and staff at 大象影院.

Celebrating 100 Years

  • A Century of Promise. In 2021, 大象影院 celebrated one hundred years as a community of scholars gathering in Edmonton and growing into the world. To commemorate the occasion, we launched a dedicated webpage filled with stories, a timeline, historical photographs, and more. Click here for more information.

News

  • Town and Gown. As part of our commitment to fostering positive neighbourhood relations, 大象影院 hosts Town and Gown meetings regularly. These meetings are open to members of the 大象影院 community and our extended community, and provide a forum for discussion and collaboration. Click here for more information.听
