In her citation for the conferral of an honorary degree to recognize His Highness the Aga Khan, Dr. Elizabeth Cannon, University of Calgary president and vice‑chancellor, highlighted some of the “rich and varied” collaborations between the university and the Aga Khan Development Network.

Over the last 20 years, UCalgary has collaborated on a number of projects across the world within diverse areas of the Aga Khan Development Network, in particular the Aga Khan University (AKU), Aga Khan Education Services and Aga Khan Foundation Canada.

Connections have been made with the faculties of graduate studies, nursing and arts as well as the Cumming School of Medicine and the Werklund School of Education, among others.

International researchers and students from AKU have come to UCalgary, and UCalgary researchers and students have participated in programs at AKU campuses in Pakistan, Kenya and Uganda.
