University of Alberta
The University of Alberta (also known as U of A and UAlberta) is a public research university located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It was founded in 1908 by Alexander Cameron Rutherford, the first premier of Alberta, and Henry Marshall Tory its first president. Its enabling legislation is the Post-secondary Learning Act. The university is considered a "Comprehensive academic and research university" (CARU), which means that it offers a range of academic and professional programs, which generally lead to undergraduate and graduate-level credentials, and have a strong research focus.
In June 2020 the university fired feminist academic Kathleen Lowery for making it clear to her students that she believed that there were fundamental biological differences between men and women beyond obvious anatomical differences. She made it clear that she did not require students to agree with this position.
