Western University Be Extraordinary The Campaign For Western

Ignite Discovery

From the operating room to outer space, our researchers drive discoveries that save lives, solve problems, create jobs and influence the way we live. Western will attract and retain world-class researchers, who share their expertise with students in the classroom and in the laboratory – further strengthening the competitiveness of our graduates.

We will build our reputation of research excellence by bringing together teams of colleagues across disciplines to explore new ways of addressing important questions.

Goals:

  • Support targeted research programs in business, neuroscience, public health and philosophy of science to advance discoveries in these areas
  • Incorporate undergraduate students into research projects to enhance learning opportunities as they are mentored by leading researchers
  • Reconfigure our library and study spaces to support the collaborative way students learn today
  • Strengthen our experiential learning experiences, such as field schools for archaeology and geology, to offer hands-on training for students
  • Enhance key areas of research, including entrepreneurship, African and American studies
  • Make our engineering program more entrepreneurial to create opportunities for students to take their ideas to the marketplace
