It begins here with a vision established more than 230 years ago to provide the people of New Brunswick with a high-quality education. We are proud of being the first English-language university in Canada, and we are committed to remaining at the forefront of teaching, discovery and applied research.
Our outstanding faculty, award-winning entrepreneurship programs, national-calibre athletic teams and state-of-the-art facilities draw students from across Canada and around the globe. We are launching our It Begins Here campaign to build on these strengths. It is the largest fundraising effort in our University’s history, and half of our $110 million campaign goal will be dedicated to support for students.
It Begins Here has five priorities: To give our students a great start; To invest in our faculties; To build on our academic strengths; To lead Canada’s next wave of innovation; And, to prepare our students to succeed in the world.
This is an historic moment. I hope you will join with us in creating new opportunities for our students and our communities.
You will make a difference in the lives of young people and enhance their experiences, on campus and elsewhere. You will invest in the people and ideas that will shape the future. You will have a greater impact on Atlantic Canada, on the nation and on the world.
It begins here!
