It’s a partnership that can make a difference, said His Highness the Aga Khan, who celebrated his golden jubilee as the spiritual leader of the world’s Ismaili Muslims the same year as the U of A’s centenary celebrations.
“Over the past decades, much of my attention has been focused on the challenges of the developing world. And it is in this arena that our partnership with University of Alberta has been most active,” he said. “The university’s commitment to the global context and the developing world has been inspiring. The match between your expertise and the developing world’s requirements as I understand them has been nothing less than extraordinary.”
The Aga Khan spoke to a crowd of U of A grad after accepting an honorary doctorate of laws from the university.
