Elizabeth Cannon: How can universities go from good to great?

Speaker Series – The Future of the University and the Future of Learning



Responses to Elizabeth Cannon's presentation


About this session

Elizabeth Cannon has been president of the University of Calgary since July 2010. Under her leadership, the university has set the goal of moving up the ranks of Canada’s top research universities by 2016. They’re succeeding, and there are some good reasons why.

During her visit to Concordia, as part of the speaker series The Future of the University and the Future of Learning, Cannon shared some (though not maybe all) of know-how behind Calgary’s ambitious ascent.

This event was the fourth in the speaker series, The Future of the University and the Future of Learning, being organized as part of Concordia's strategic directions initiative. The university is bringing a diverse group of thought-leaders from across Canada and the U.S. to share their insights and know-how on emerging issues and trends in higher education and learning.
