University of Alberta

Think Big. Think Bold. Think Beyond.

The University of Alberta is building one of the world’s great universities for the public good. The university is taking steps to secure its place in the top tier of the world’s public research universities―a goal that, in the words of its founding president in 1908, will further the “uplifting of the whole people.”

Together We Can


Our Engagement.

As a public university, UAlberta benefits from the provincial government providing much-needed funding to cover the basics of a solid education. But philanthropy is critical for funding extraordinary achievements and innovation.

The university selected Marts & Lundy Communications to make the case for supporting UAlberta at unprecedented levels and help move it “from good to great.” That journey is in full force, backed by a compelling fundraising video we produced that took home the coveted CASE Gold Award (District VIII).

Our award-winning work for UAlberta extended to case statement writing and design as well. The results: a university that is attracting exceptional students and faculty, preparing students to succeed in a rapidly changing society, and advancing meaningful discoveries that serve Alberta and the world.
