Olds College of Agriculture & Technology has announced the naming of its newest learning facility after the Werklund family.

On September 22, officials stated that the new Werklund Agriculture and Technology Center was named after Dave Werklund and Susan Norman-Werklund “in recognition of their leadership investment and unrelenting support that has transformed the College into one of Canada’s premiere agriculture and agri-food learning and research institutions”.

The Center officially opened to students on September 6, 2022, for the first day of fall term classes.

The new $14 million dollar facility, which officials state was completed on time and on budget, features 3,000 square meters of technology-focused learning space, including a lecture theatre, three large hands-on ag-tech labs, collaboration and group areas for students , as well as a student common space located in the heart of the building. The College says the new facility was made possible, in part, by the support and commitment from the Werklunds.
