In 2007, we celebrate their vision, and the collective effort that made it a reality. With wisdom and insight, they laid the foundation on which successive generations of students, faculty, staff and administrators have built a University that has a rich and varied history of both teaching and learning, and a strong sense of the role we play in our community, our province and our country.
Looking ahead, we are called upon to carry that original vision into our second century. We will do that by re-committing to achieving the three distinguishing features for which the University of Saskatchewan will be known — international standards in all activities, academic pre-eminence, and a sense of place.
As we celebrate our successes with pride and anticipate our future with excitement, the University of Saskatchewan is ready to expand on the original vision of our founders. Having built a world-class university on the banks of a prairie river, our mission now is to engage fully in all we do, to enlighten all we serve, and to explore all aspects of our world.
Peter MacKinnon, President
