The University of Calgary first established an ad hoc 25th Anniversary Committee in 1988 in order to oversee the planning of events that were to run from April 1 to December, 1991. The Secretariat's first official meeting was in March, 1990 under the Chair of Ted Sullivan. The development of the Secretariat's mission statement took into account not only the celebration of the University's achievements but also the celebration of the civic, business, research and cultural communities that had grown with and helped the University during the first 25 years. The events planned by the Secretariat were to embody the spirit of demonstrating, through scholarship, performance and professionalism the University's committment to excellence in teaching, research and community service. By soliciting city-wide support and participation, the Secretariat designed the events to thank those who had provided the foundations on which the University stood, to excite potential students about the future of the University and to strengthen the sense of community cooperation.
