The Chancellor's Community 'Pioneers of Tomorrow' on April 17 was a night of innovation in water security and sustainability, geothermal energy production, and 3D print manufacturing. Guests, including Chancellor's Scholars Anneka McLaren and Lanea Lafontaine, connected with undergraduate engineering students on their final year 'capstone' projects and learned about advances being made in alternative safe drinking water systems for our communities, software apps that can improve communication for those with vocal and hearing impairments, and enhanced safety features for wheelchairs. After dinner, participants enjoyed a guided tour of Dr. Jinkai Xue’s Cold-Region Water Resource Recovery Laboratory and Dr. Mohammad Khondoker’s 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing Research Lab to learn about cutting-edge advances being made in water sustainability and 3D printers.

'Theatre of Dreams' was more than just a metaphor at our Chancellor's Community dinner and tour on February 13 - it was a heartfelt celebration of gratitude for our generous supporters and a chance for them to experience the remarkable talents of our gifted students, right here on campus.

The stage of our University Theatre transformed into a gourmet dining experience where guests were not only treated to a delicious meal but also to an enchanting performance by the University of Regina Chamber Singers, a production of sonnets by talented students from the University of Regina Theatre Department, and behind-the-scenes tours of our world-class Faculty of Media, Art, and Performance facilities at the University.

On November 7, 2023 the Chancellor's Community presented A Taste of Research: The Chancellor's Community Lecture. Focusing on Health and Wellness, this free, public event featured bite-sized presentations providing an opportunity to hear from and interact with leading researchers from the U of R, including: Dr. Gord Asmundson (President's Research Chair; Professor and Department Head, Psychology); Dr. Mohan Babu (Chancellor's Research Chair in Network Biology; Professor, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry); Dr. Lise Milne (Associate Professor, Social Work); Dr. Melissa Morgan (Head, Music Department; Director of Choirs); Dr. Julia Totosy de Zepetnek (Associate Professor, Kinesiology; Adjunct Professor, Biology); and Dr. Chris Yost (Vice-President, Research; Professor, Biology). Emceed by Chancellor Pam Klein, the evening also featured a special performance by third-year piano student Xavier Russell McLean; a selection of student research poster-presentations; and a private pre-lecture reception for researchers and invited guests.
On September 12, 2023, the U of R presented its first event in celebration of the launch of the Chancellor's Community: The Chancellor's Community Concert featuring JUNO Award-winning artists Digging Roots. This concert, held at the beautifully restored Darke Hall at the University of Regina, drew on the band's experiences travelling the world with a joyful message of resistance, celebrating Anishinaabe and Onkwehón:we traditions of round dance and interconnectedness.
