Lethbridge College is an important part of the social and economic fabric of the city, region and province. By maintaining close relationships with government officials, local Indigenous communities, community organizations, industry members and prominent community members, the college plays an active role in a thriving southern Alberta community.

Government and community partners

Lethbridge College’s Community Engagement and Government Relations team is a connector that works to ensure strong relationships exist between the college’s President, Executive Leadership Team and Board of Governors with stakeholders from across the city, region and province. These relationships are crucial to ensuring we continue to produce graduates that have the skills to meet the needs of business and industry, and power future economic growth.

Our team works tirelessly to promote Lethbridge College's priorities with members of the municipal, provincial and federal governments to build and maintain awareness of the important role Lethbridge College and our partners play on the regional and international stage.

We work extensively to align the efforts of diverse industries, researchers and intermediary institutions to build strategic relationships with members of the college community to work towards common goals that support economic growth and social development.

The Community Engagement and Government Relations team supports college and community needs by facilitating campus tours for government and community guests, evaluating sponsorship opportunities for community events, advocating on behalf of external partners in the region and province, and identifying alignments between external community members and internal college experts.

When Lethbridge and southern Alberta thrive, we all thrive.
