Welcome to the V.V.U.A. website!
The Vegetarians and Vegans of the University of Alberta is a student group that enables vegetarians, vegans, and anyone who is curious about this lifestyle to connect, share ideas, and socialize with like-minded people on campus. Please check out our events page or visit us on Facebook to find out how you can get involved!
The V.V.U.A. is concerned with the political, social, environmental, moral, and health issues associated with the consumption of animal products. We seek to promote a broader adoption of and heightened awareness of vegetarian and vegan lifestyles by improving access to appealing and healthful vegan and vegetarian dietary options for University of Alberta students, faculty, and the greater Edmonton area; by promoting the benefits of a vegetarian and vegan lifestyle in an inclusive, positive, and conflict-free manner; and by providing social networking opportunities, support, and educational materials for those who are interested in reducing their consumption of animal products, those who are interested in adopting a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, and those who are currently vegetarian or vegan.
You do not have to be a vegetarian, vegan, or a UofA student to join the V.V.U.A.! Anyone who is curious about a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle is welcome to attend our meetings and events.
