Our students are realizing the value of a University of Regina degree. A degree that is more than academic credentials - it's an opportunity to discover, cultivate and advance the interests of the greater community in our province, our country and beyond.
But they can't do it alone. The University of Regina relies on your support. We rely on you to support our students, further our research, grow our campus, and expand the programs we offer. Your support brings all of those pieces together.
A Vision for Serving the Community for the Next 100 Years
Over 100 years ago, the University of Regina began its history at the College Avenue Campus. Now it's time to restore and revitalize the campus for the future benefit of our students and the community.
This revitalization, called Building Knowledge - The College Avenue Campus Renewal Project, is the University's number one capital fundraising priority this year.
The Campus will be known as the University of Regina Leadership and Outreach Centre (LOC). The College Building, the Conservatory and Darke Hall will be fully restored and adaptively reused as a fundamental part of the University of Regina. The LOC highlights include:
- Executive Education Centre
The hub of the LOC will be a new Executive Education Centre that will equip the Centre for Continuing Education, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy and the broader community with state-of-the-art meeting rooms for groups ranging from 20 to 300.
- New Atrium Linking the Conservatory and Darke Hall
The Leadership and Outreach Centre will provide a large scale premier event and reception space in a modern, striking atrium that respects and enhances the heritage of the site by linking the Conservatory and Darke Hall.
- Revitalized Darke Hall
Darke Hall will again become a well used, bustling event space that maintains significant public access, functioning as a community facility - invigorated through partnerships with the broader community. We will continue to honour the vision of the primary benefactor Mr. F.N. Darke "to build a temple to the arts, and a centre for cultural activity for the College and the Community".
Once completed, the University of Regina Leadership and Outreach Centre will serve as a provincial and national destination that integrates academic programming with outreach and training for both public and private sector professionals.
