David Turpin was officially installed as the University of Alberts’s 13th president and vice-chancellor at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium on Monday, Nov. 16.

“I accept this responsibility with humility, and with enormous appreciation for this university and its traditions,” he said.

Soon after his installment, Turpin announced the guarantee of a place in residence for every first-year student, starting next fall.

This is part of a process to bring students more opportunities to engage, he said.
