Jane’s Walk 2017
There to Now – Celebrating 140 Years of the University of Manitoba
What a great way to celebrate the University of Manitoba’s 140th anniversary and Canada’s 150th! Join the Office of Sustainability and Campus Planning Office for the university’s third annual Jane’s Walk.
The theme this year will be “There to Now,” which looks at the history of the university’s Fort Garry campus and its relationship to the community through its buildings and campus design.
It has been 140 years since the U of M became the first degree-granting institution west of Ontario, and recognizing its history and diverse community is the next step towards taking our place.
The walk will start at 10 a.m. on May 6 at the Administration Building (66 Chancellors Circle) and end at 11:45 a.m. at Investors Group Athletic Centre for the 28th Annual Traditional Graduation Pow Wow in celebration of the university’s Indigenous graduating students.
What is Jane’s Walk?
Jane’s Walk is an international movement bringing communities together through free, locally-organized walking tours.
