Our priorities

President Cassels with students
Help us provide support for students, offer dynamic learning opportunities, and create vital impact through research and community partnerships.

Student support

Your support opens doors to students from diverse backgrounds and rewards their hard work. Help us establish additional scholarships and bursaries, increase support for international students, and provide greater access, support and opportunities for Indigenous students.

Dynamic learning

Students on an international co-op

We’re already leading the way in dynamic learning, but you can help us expand experiential learning opportunities to all students. We want to create even more hands-on experiences for our students through co-op, internships, work experience, community service learning, student mobility, field schools and engagement in research.

Vital Impact

Your partnership can strengthen our research—inspiring discovery and innovation that has vital impact on people, places and the planet. It can also help us meet community needs through partnerships and knowledge transfer. Support graduate and post-doctoral fellowships, endowed or term chairs and professorships, or fund individual research projects.
