September 27, 2021
The University of Lethbridge has announced the creation of the Evelyn Hamilton Chair in Liberal Education, thanks to a $2M donation from Art and Mary Jane Crooks. The position will be based in ULethbridge’s School of Liberal Education and will focus on instilling the liberal education goals of rigorous inquiry, the pursuit of knowledge, and critical thought grounded in evidence-based reasoning. “This Chair is a great fit for the vision we have for the School of Liberal Education and we are absolutely thrilled to have this happening,” said Dr Shelly Wismath, dean of the School of Liberal Education. The investment for the new chair was provided as part of the university’s SHINE campaign. ULethbridge (AB)
