University Facts and Statistics: University of Calgary

The University of Calgary believes that in order to properly understand an ever-changing, complex, and intertwined world one needs a breadth of knowledge that cannot be attained by concentrating on a single discipline; as a result, all major degrees at the University are interdisciplinary. The University of Calgary is one of Canada’s premier seven 'research universities' and is a member of the 'Networks of Centres of Excellence,' a Canada-wide program of research and innovation designed to enhance the country’s economy and living standards. Currently, the University is in the middle of its 'Raising Our Sights' initiative through which the school aims to re-shift its priorities and elevate the standards of its academic programs, education, and research including enhancing multidisciplinary inquiry. In 2006, the University of Calgary is opening a veterinary school. Among the most distinguished graduates of the University are James Gosling, the inventor of the computer programming language known as Java, who graduated with a Bachelor of Computer Science in 1977, and Stephen Harper, leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, who received a Bachelor of Economics in 1985 and a Master of Economics in 1991.
