Geschiedenis


The University of Alberta, a single, openbare provinciale universiteit, was chartered in 1906 in Edmonton, Alberta with the University Act in the first session of the new Legislative Assembly, with Premier Alexander C. Rutherford as its sponsor. De universiteit werd gemodelleerd naar de Amerikaanse staat universiteit, met de nadruk op uitbreiding werk en toegepast onderzoek. The governance was modelled on Ontario’s University of Toronto Act of 1906: a bicameral system consisting of a senate (faculteit) verantwoordelijk voor de academische beleid, en een raad van gouverneurs (burgers) controlling financial policy and having formal authority in all other matters. De president, benoemd door de raad van bestuur, was to provide a link between the two bodies and perform institutional leadership.

Heated wrangling took place between the cities of Calgary and Edmonton over the location of the provincial capital and of the university. 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. The city of Edmonton became the capital and the then-separate city of Strathcona on the south bank of the river, where Premier Alexander Rutherford lived, was granted the university. When the two cities were amalgamated in 1912, Edmonton became both the political and academic capital.

With Henry Marshall Tory as its first president, the University of Alberta started operation in 1908. Forty-five students attended classes in English, mathematics and modern languages, on the top floor of the Queen Alexandra Elementary School in Strathcona, while the first campus building, Athabasca Hall, was under construction. In a letter to Alexander Cameron Rutherford in early 1906, while he was in the process of setting up McGill University College in Vancouver, Tory wrote, 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.

Under Tory’s guidance, the early years were marked by recruitment of professors and construction of the first campus buildings. Percy Erskine Nobbs & Frank Darling designed the master plan for the University of Alberta in 1909–10. Nobbs designed the Arts Building (1914–15), laboratories and Power House (1914). With Cecil S. Burgess, Nobbs designed the Provincial College of Medicine (1920-21). Architect Herbert Alton Magoon designed several buildings on campus, including St. Stephen’s Methodist College (1910) and the residence for professor Rupert C. Lodge (1913).

The University of Alberta awarded its first degrees in 1912, the same year it established the Department of Extension. The Faculty of Medicine was established the following year, and the Faculty of Agriculture began in 1915. But along with these early milestones came the First World War and the global influenza pandemic of 1918, whose toll on the university resulted in a two-month suspension of classes in the fall of 1918. Despite these setbacks, the university continued to grow. Door 1920, it had six faculties (Arts and Sciences, Toegepaste wetenschap, landbouw, Geneeskunde, Tandheelkunde, en Recht) and two schools (Pharmacy and Accountancy). It awarded a range of degrees: Baccalaureus (BA), Bachelor van wetenschap (BSc), Bachelor of Science in de landbouw (BSA), bachelor in de rechten (LLB), Bachelor of Pharmacy (PHMB), Bachelor of Divinity (BD), Master of Arts (MA), Master of Science (MSc), en doctor in de rechtsgeleerdheid (LLD). Er waren 851 mannelijke studenten en 251 vrouwelijke studenten, en 171 academisch personeel, inclusief 14 vrouw.

The Breton Soil Plots were established at the faculty of agriculture from 1929 – present to provide agricultural research on fertilization, usage, crop rotations and farming practices on Gray-Luvisolic soils (Gray-Wooded), which cover many regions in western Canada.

The War Memorial Committee commissioned a War Memorial Pipe Organ to be erected by the Casavant Frères in U of A Convocation Hall in 1925 in memory of 80 University of Alberta comrades who gave up their lives during the Great War.

In het begin van de 20e eeuw, beroepsonderwijs uitgebreid buiten de traditionele gebieden van de theologie, wet en geneeskunde. Graduate opleiding op basis van de Duits-geïnspireerde Amerikaanse model van gespecialiseerde natuurlijk het werk en de voltooiing van een onderzoek proefschrift werd geïntroduceerd. In 1929, the university established a College of Education. This period of growth was to be short-lived, hoewel, as the Great Depression and the Second World War curtailed enrolment and expansion until 1945. The university also gained new public powers. In 1928, the university’s senate was granted the power to oversee and appoint half of the Alberta Eugenics Board, charged with recommending individuals for sterilization.

Spurred by postwar growth in the student population and the discovery of oil in Leduc in 1947, the University of Alberta underwent expansion through the 1950s that continued through the 1960s as the baby-boom generation swelled the enrolment ranks. These two decades also saw expansion of campus buildings, including new buildings for the faculties of physical education and education, and the Cameron Library. The University of Alberta Press, concentrating on western Canadian history, general science and ecology, werd opgericht in 1969.

Het beleid van de universitaire opleiding gestart in de jaren 1960 gereageerd op bevolkingsdruk en de overtuiging dat het hoger onderwijs was de sleutel tot sociale rechtvaardigheid en economische productiviteit voor individuen en voor de samenleving. In aanvulling op, the single-university policy in the West was changed as existing colleges of the provincial universities gained autonomy as universities. In september 19, 1960, the university opened a new 130-hectare campus in Calgary. Door 1966, the University of Calgary had been established as an autonomous institution.

From the mid-1970s to the late 1980s, the university enjoyed sustained growth. In 1970, the Collège Saint-Jean began offering French-language instruction in arts, wetenschap en onderwijs. In 1984, the School of Native Studies was established. Buildings that had been started in the 1960s, such as Biological Sciences and the Central Academic Building, were completed in the early 1970s. Extensive renovations restored the venerable Arts Building, as well as the Athabasca and Pembina halls. New buildings completed in the early 1980s included the Business Building and the first phase of the Walter C. Mackenzie Health Sciences Centre. Another new building, the distinctive Universiade Pavilion (nicknamed theButterdome”), was completed as part of the university’s preparations to host the World University Games in 1983, the first time the event was held in North America.

The 1990s were a time of financial constraint as the Alberta government made budgetary cutbacks. but they were also a time in which the university benefited from philanthropic support. The $11-million Timms Centre for the Arts, which began construction in 1993, was made possible by a large donation from its namesake, Albert Timms. In 1998, Gladys Young’s $3.5-million donation to the university undergraduate scholarship fund in memory of Roland Young, who graduated from the U of A in 1928, was the largest private donation for undergraduate scholarships in the university’s history.

The early 2000s brought substantial funding increases. High energy prices drove Alberta’s energy boom resulting in multibillion-dollar government surpluses and the subsequent creation of a $4.5 billion provincial post-secondary educational endowment. In 2005, the university hired Indira Samarasekera as its 12th president, embarking on an ambitious plan to establish itself as one of the world’s top public research universities. These plans were hampered by the 2008 economic downturn, and by late March 2008, the university’s endowment had shrunk by more than $100 miljoen, bijna 14 per cent of its value. The university predicted a $59-million budget shortfall in 2009 before provincial cuts brought that figure to $79 miljoen. To close the budgetary gap, the university increased non-instructional fees by $290 per year laid off teaching and support staff, and even eliminated phones in some departments (such as English and Film Studies).

De 2013 Alberta Budget cut provincial post-secondary grants by $147 miljoen, met inbegrip van een 7.2 per cent cut to the university’s base operating grant. The university is covering its resulting shortfall by reducing total spending in 2013 door $28 miljoen, then cutting an additional $56 million to balance its budget by the spring of 2015.

In april 26, a study group of students and teachers from the University of Alberta came to visit BNU-HKBU United International College and took part in a short-term study programme that lasted a fortnight.

De 2015 Alberta Budget released in October 2015 restored a 1.4 per cent cut to the U of A’s operational funding, and provided for an additional two per cent increase in the 2015-16 fiscal year. The budget also included a two-year tuition freeze. October also saw the launch of an institutional strategic planning process intended to prompt discussion and gather feedback on the university’s strategic priorities, with the goal of assuming a national leadership role in post-secondary education.
