Happy Pride Month 2020!
AUSU proudly celebrates the diversity of Athabasca University students. We are distance education learners united, around the world, and we stand for an inclusive post-secondary system with equal access for all learners, free from discrimination and systemic barriers.

Light the Night – AU’s 5oth Anniversary Event
Fifty years ago on June 25, 1970, Athabasca University (AU) was established by an Order in Council of the Government of Alberta.
Athabasca University is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary by lighting the night at three AU locations (in Athabasca, Calgary, and Edmonton) on June 25, 2020!
Calgary and Edmonton
For those in Calgary and Edmonton, the Calgary Tower and the High-Level Bridge will be aglow in AU orange and blue at 8:30pm MT.
The AU campus in Athabasca will be hosting a pop-up drive-by event on where they will be handing out Beyond 50 prizes, presenting a new anniversary installation in honour of AU’s 50-year history, projecting a light display, and more!
Find out more on the AU Website here.
Come by, snap a picture (while safely parked and socially-distanced), and tag it on social media with #AthabascaU50 to show off your AU pride!
We hope to see you there – or at least see your great pictures of the events!
