UAlberta alumni endows $2.5M professorship in construction

October 4, 2016

University of Alberta alumni Greg Christenson recently announced the creation of a $2.5M endowed professorship to be established in the university's Nasseri School of Construction Science and Engineering. “I’m more interested in the whole spectrum of development, from the raw land all the way to densification, to building a community, to creating something more than buildings,” commented Christenson, whose charitable foundation is establishing the Christenson Professorship in Building Sustainable and Healthy Communities. UAlberta Engineering Dean Fraser Forbes added that “the Christenson Chair establishes a legacy of advancing the engineering and science of community building, giving generations of engineers the tools they need to improve the ways our communities and cities work.” Edmonton Journal | UAlberta
