Giving to the Faculty of Extension

In 1912, Henry Marshall Tory established the Department of Extension at the University of Alberta to “take the university to the people”. For over 100 years we have been doing exactly that. This would not have been possible without the support of our community.

Through your gifts, the Faculty of Extension is able to play an important role in connecting the university to the surrounding community and the industries that help to shape Alberta’s economy, developing impactful programming and supporting adult learners as they grow in their careers.

Your donation to the Faculty of Extension will empower individuals, communities, and society as a whole.

Faculty of Extension General Fund

The Faculty of Extension develops and delivers more than 300 courses and 40+ part-time continuing and professional education programs tailored primarily to entry-level to mid-career learners. More than 7,000 students attend our classes every year, improving their professional skills and helping to keep Alberta’s workforce up-to-date with our changing economic and technological landscape. 

Extension is also the gateway that integrates international students to the University of Alberta, as we provide academic English language support and training through our internationally recognized English Language School.

Our learners shape the future—and your support will continue to place the Faculty of Extension at the forefront of community engagement, taking the University to the people locally, nationally, and internationally.
