The impetus for the Rothney Astrophysical Observatory (RAO) was initiated by Mr. Alexander (Sandy) Rothney Cross in December 1970 when he offered to donate a quarter section of land near Priddis, Alberta to the University. The Capital Resources Policy Committee passed a motion in June 1971 to proceed with a tree farm, animal farm and observatory on the land (the tree and animal farms never came to fruition). At Cross’s request, the observatory was named the Rothney Astrophysical Observatory to honour his mother’s side of the family.

Student Programs and Services was created in 1973 as a unit within the Division of Student Personnel Services. Mr. William A. Stewart was the first Chief Officer. The unit’s role was to provide services and programs to incoming students that would enhance both their University understanding and their University experience. Student Programs and Services also provided specialized programs for international, mature or disabled students, coordinated annual Open Houses, acted as a liaison with international student organizations, operated an International Education Information Centre and provided information, assistance and encouragement to female students regarding their career goals.
In 1974, Theron A. Craig replaced William Stewart as Chief Officer. In the spring of 1982, Student Programs and Services became Student Services and the Chief Officer was renamed Director. At this time, Student Services provided resource people, materials and services to the following offices: Prospective Student Advising; Foreign Student Advising and CIDA Student Co-ordination; Disabled Student Advising; Adult and Part-time Student Advising; Women Student Advising; Canadian University Service Overseas (CUSO) Selection; and the International Education Information Centre.
On September 1, 1989, Student Services became the Student Resource Centre. Julie Kearns was named Acting Director and later Director in 1990. In late spring 1990, Lorna Cammaert, the Associate Vice-President (Student Affairs), undertook a full review of the Centre’s mandate. The view took into account consideration of recommendations on the establishment of a University Entrance Office as outlined in the 1980 Richards and Rosenvall Reports; recommendations on the recruitment function; and determining a balance between the recruitment/orientation mandates with that of providing support services for ongoing students. The Review Committee established that a central contact office was needed for students and potential students to go to for information, and that the Student Resource Centre was still the logical office to coordinate these activities.
In 1996, Director Julie Kearns revisited structural change again by recommending among other initiatives that the liaison/recruitment function be transferred to the Registrar’s Office. Following from these recommendations, and in combination with the university-wide Strategic Transformation planning taking place at this time, the Student Resource Centre was discontinued as of June 30th, 1997. Three new units were created for the functions of student recruitment, liaison and enrolment (Prospective Student Office), international student services (International Student Centre), and services for students with disabilities (Disabilities Resource Centre).
