The work we do at Western makes important contributions to Canada’s future and to our broader global community. Our donors’ generosity helps expand student knowledge and perspectives while supporting innovation in teaching and research. Together, we are developing the next generation of leaders.

This fall, we introduced new international scholarships and awards, including the Global Opportunities (GO) Awards, to offer students exchanges, study-abroad programs, international field courses, and community service learning projects. As you’ll read, Peter Verlinden’s adventure in Denmark reinforces that international learning opportunities provide students with life-transforming experiences that prepare them to be global citizens.

We also celebrate a remarkable gift from Ray and Margaret Elliott whose support has established a new Chair in Surgical Innovation to advance the knowledge and critical skills needed by our future physicians. Endowed chairs such as this are instrumental to our ability to attract and retain the world’s best researchers and faculty to Western.

Your support enables Western to provide an exceptional student experience. Through your generosity, we are able to attract and support bright, young minds from across Canada and around the world by providing a world-class education, regardless of their financial circumstances.

Thank you for your continued support. Your gifts inspire students to achieve academic excellence and to be prepared to contribute to a better world.

Amit Chakma President & Vice-Chancellor
