Turning 50: Tania Alekson

In honour of Capilano’s 50th Anniversary, we are celebrating CapU faculty and staff members who are also turning 50 this year. In this series, they share their inspirations, hopes and stories about what it means to reach this significant milestone with their birthday buddy, Capilano University.
“Since I was in university, I’ve tried to become more forgiving — everyone makes mistakes. As a sheltered, suburban youth, my open-mindedness was bound by my limited experience. As I see more of the world, it increases my desire to work for tolerance and the classic liberal values: humanity and knowledge.” Tania Alekson
