The University’s Place In Calgary
Tuesday April 2nd, 6 PM – Science Theaters 145
In conjunction with the NDP club at the university, we present a discussion with Calgary Alderman Brian Pincott and David Couroux – a planner and professor at the U of C.
What role should the U of C play in Calgary? Should the University be more separate or more integrated in the city? What could be done to better join the U of C with the greater Calgary area?
