Patricia Gonzalez and Slavko Uzelac

Energize: the Campaign for Eyes High

Thank you. Together we have achieved an incredible, historic milestone for the University of Calgary, and for our community. 

Dr. Dylan Pillai

Precision testing in the palm of your hand

UCalgary’s innovation ecosystem is helping grow and diversify the economy by commercializing new tech — like Dr. Dylan Pillai’s rapid COVID-19 test, which has the potential to improve health outcomes in populations around the world.

Carolina Romeo

Youthful ambition

Scholarships and bursaries give students both the financial means and confidence to reach their full potential — students like Carolina Romeo, who went from being UCalgary’s youngest-ever student-athlete to a leader in Canada’s energy sector.

Terry Morey

Sunny ways

Precision medicine research is transforming the way we diagnose and treat disease — and giving hope to Albertans like Terry Morey, who has long exceeded his initial 18-month prognosis.

Paying it forward

Having immigrated to Canada as children, alumni Patricia Gonzalez and Slavko Uzelac understand the hardships that come with starting over. When they established the Learn, Lead, Inspire Award in 2019, they did so to make life a little easier for students who have children.

These are the stories — your stories — of how meaningful giving can change people, and the world, for the better.

Finding balance — on and off the court

Ezeoha Santiago has had to perfect the art of balancing two demanding pursuits: athletics and academics. Thanks to donors and volunteers, the Sixth Man Club has his back.
