The college is part of the $70-million Peter Lougheed Leadership Initiative, which also includes a program at The Banff Centre.

Campbell served as Canada's 19th prime minister in 1993.

She says being involved with a school named after former Alberta premier Peter Lougheed is a great honour.

"Peter Lougheed himself once said, 'Strive for the extraordinary,' and that is exactly our aim – to deliver an extraordinary learning experience that inspires a new generation of students and leaders," Campbell said Tuesday in a release.
