 NOVA CORPORATION OF ALBERTA CONTRIBUTES $750,000
 CALGARY, Alberta, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- NOVA Corp. of Alberta


(NYSE: NVA, Toronto, Montreal: NVA) will contribute $750,000 dollars toward funding a university chair in Occupational Health, Safety and Environment at the University of Calgary.
 The funding, payable over five years, commences in 1992. NOVA anticipates the Alberta government will match its donation to cover the chair's funding requirement of $1.5 million dollars, said B. F. Olson, NOVA vice president.
 The Chair will reside within the Faculty of Management which will coordinate with other faculties, including engineering, law, nursing, environmental science and medicine.
 ''We believe an interdisciplinary approach, which brings together the different perspectives required to achieve business goals, is a necessary change that universities need to address. Students need the opportunity to develop an appreciation of the importance of these disciplines to the successful attainment of business goals,'' Mr. Olson said.
 NOVA is a widely held company operating internationally from headquarters in Calgary. NOVA builds its future on pipelines, and the manufacturing and marketing of chemicals produced primarily from Alberta natural resources.
