Place matters. Our unique environment inspires us to defy boundaries, discover, and innovate in exciting ways. Perhaps it’s the reason you choose to support UVic. But the impact you’ve made is also the reason why UVic continues to be an extraordinary university that students, researchers and community partners want to be part of.

With us at the edge of what’s next

Canada’s 150th offers all of us an opportunity to reflect on the ways in which our heritage shapes our future as a nation and as a society. Part of that process is asking some hard questions as we tackle those issues that matter to people, places and the planet.

In light of the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, how do we reconcile the past to create a better future? Are we driving ideas and testing solutions that will have a vital impact on our world in years to come? What paths will our current students pave for the next community of learners? How can we, as leaders in community engagement, work with and assist communities across Canada and the globe? As you can see from the stories highlighted in this report, these questions motivate our work, and lead to inspiring results.

It’s no coincidence that these stories all have something else that connects them; they show how your gifts are integral to this kind of work. This report is ultimately about you. When you engage with us on essential issues, you help create that vital impact in our world, and we couldn’t do it without your support.

If this report inspires you, I ask you to reflect on the impending issues that matter to you. Bring your ideas and solutions to UVic so that together we can continue to push the boundaries of knowledge and seek out the edge of what’s next.
