As Western’s newly appointed Provost & Vice-President (Academic), I consider it my personal mission to help ensure students have access to the best possible resources that support their academic success and enhance their overall student experience.

This includes everything from access to state-of-the-art study space to an expanding array of services that help students care for their physical and mental well-being. At Western, we believe student success is achieved not just through what happens inside the classroom, but also through the resources and opportunities for personal growth that will lead to life and career success beyond our campus gates.

We couldn’t possibly succeed in this ambitious mission without the help of extraordinary donors.

Every year, parents of past and present students donate to Western to help us fulfill our mission to deliver Canada’s best student experience. Last year this included more than 550 donors who supported The Parents’ Fund.

This fund supports many areas on campus including student bursaries and scholarships, which relieve financial stress, inspire academic achievement, and support the pursuit of extracurricular activities and personal development.

In this edition of Western’s Parent Connection, you’ll meet Abigail Edwards, a Linguistics student in the Faculty of Arts & Humanities, who received a parent-funded award in recognition of her academic achievements and community leadership. We’ll introduce you to Music student Olivia Adams, who explains how an award alleviated some daunting financial concerns, and you’ll meet Dory Abelman, who was able to pursue his research interests in global health thanks to donor support.

I am proud of our students, and I am grateful to every parent who entrusts their child’s education to us.

Western’s faculty and staff are dedicated to ensuring Western provides the best student experience for every student. Please accept my best wishes for your own son or daughter in the year ahead.
