Western University Be Extraordinary The Campaign For Western

A world of possibilities

October 17, 2016

In my role as Western’s Provost & Vice-President (Academic), I am proud to be part of a team of academic and administrative leaders, faculty and staff whose common goal is to ensure our students have every opportunity to develop and succeed in their studies and lives post-graduation.

While your daughter or son is with us, we aim to provide them with the knowledge, skills and confidence to be the best they can be. Indeed, our goal is to deliver the best learning experience among Canada’s top research-intensive universities.

With more unique program combinations than any other Canadian university, Western is a place where students can tailor their education to suit their personal strengths and career ambitions. We respect that no two students are the same and we embrace those differences, which allows them to challenge themselves and grow into future leaders.

In this edition of Western’s Parent Connection, you will read about Western students who are making their unique dreams come true with support from donor-funded awards such as Parents’ Fund Awards and Global Opportunities Awards.

You will meet Engineering and Music student Hilary Luo, who is just as at home singing on stage as she is building robots. Another, Corry Faulkner, recently completed a combined degree in Fine Arts and Religion and is off to teacher’s college this fall. Her dream is to help young students pursue and develop their passions, just as she has.

We have also included a story about our Wellness Education Centre, a new initiative that offers a wide range of resources to ensure students are better equipped to maintain healthy minds and bodies while navigating their way through the stress and rigours of postsecondary study.

Thanks to support from parent donors, like you, we are able to provide students more and better opportunities to pursue their passions and prepare them for life after Western. We appreciate your generosity and commitment to helping us make it possible for students like your son or daughter to have the best Western experience possible.
