About us

Earlier this spring, 26 of Alberta's post-secondary institutions received a devastating 7.4% cut in their operating budgets. After accounting for inflation and the rising costs of these institutions, the estimated amount of damage resulting from the cuts amounts to 10%.

Postsecondary First is composed of a group of concerned citizens who have gathered together to remind Alberta what well funded public Postsecondary Institutions have done for Alberta. Help us remind Alberta to put Postsecondary First.



History

Since its inception in 1905, the Alberta post-secondary education system has enriched the lives of hundreds of thousands of students. In 2013, the 26 post-secondary institutions across Alberta continue to do the same, fundamentally transforming students’ characters while preparing them for jobs in industries pertinent to a flourishing Albertan society, including health care, the media, teaching, and fine arts.

Graduates aren’t the only benefactors from this experience. Alumni from post-secondary institutions from across Alberta are continuously helping to transform and advance the province both economically and culturally. Graduates from every one of our post-secondary institutions help found and deliver the businesses, arts, and non-profits which define our province. All of the past and future graduates take the knowledge and experiences gained from their time at Alberta post-secondary institutions and help construct the fabric of our future.



What we need from you

Everyone loves education - it makes the world go round. We aim to launch a province wide campaign reminding Alberta that to ensure the success of our future we need to put Postsecondary First. We want Postsecondary education put back on the agenda, so we need banners, leaflets, tshirts, lawn signs, bus stop advertisements - anything we can do to start the conversation again. Our aim is to launch this in September, and hit the streets hard. That's where you come in - we need your help making this a reality. Please consider donating anything from a few dollars to anything you can muster. We have the team that can pull this off if you enable us.



What you get out of this

First - You get the pleasure of knowing you will have helped kickstart the public conversation around the importance of Alberta Postsecondary education. For those donors who have kindly contributed a sum over $100, we will gladly feature your name and photo on our website as a distinguished PSE ally. If there is any other special request, please send an email to a coordinator and we discuss details regarding your request.



Alberta students, professors, and distinguished Alumni. We hope you will help us put Postsecondary First.

Sincerely,


The Team at Postsecondary First
