The University of Canterbury is proud of its alumni and friends and we honour the achievements and accomplishments of the men and women who have studied at the university.

From the 2016 Annual Report:
Originally built in 1910, the [Arts Centre of Christchurch Chemistry] building’s interior has been redesigned for Music and Classics students and staff in the UC College of Arts | Te Rāngai Toi Tangata. It also includes a new exhibition space, the Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities. The museum showcases the James Logie Memorial Collection – one of the most significant collections of Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Near Eastern artefacts in the southern hemisphere. It was named in recognition of UC alumnus Professor David Teece and his wife, Leigh Teece, who generously donated funds to support the refurbishment of the Chemistry building.
Dr. Teece is also the president of the University of Canterbury Foundation in America, Inc.
