About the Campaign

Eddy Campbell, President

A Message from the President

Thank you for being part of this historic moment as we celebrate the success of It Begins Here, the largest fundraising effort in UNB’s history. Nearly 10,000 alumni, as well as students, faculty, staff and corporate and community partners joined the campaign as we met and then surpassed our $110 million goal. I am grateful for the magnitude of your support and I am truly proud of your dedication to supporting our University.

The It Begins Here Final Campaign Report

UNB has a great story to tell – we are Canada’s first English-language university and one of the nation’s top comprehensive universities. Our outstanding faculty, award-winning entrepreneurship programs, national-calibre athletics teams and state-of-the-art facilities draw students from across Canada and around the globe. The It Begins Here campaign has helped build on these strengths.

A large part of our success is due to the hard work of the campaign co-chairs and the campaign cabinet. Bob, David and our dedicated volunteers have taken the story of what faculty and students are accomplishing at UNB and carried that message all across the country.

Together, we have worked hard to ensure that students have the financial support they need to obtain a quality university education. UNB begins with our students and that’s why one half of the campaign’s goal has been dedicated to student support. With your assistance, we have impacted the lives of young people and enhanced their experiences, on campus and elsewhere. These students will carry with them a sense of gratitude as they graduate and make a difference in Atlantic Canada, the nation and the world.

Thank you for joining with us in this campaign. I hope you are as proud of our UNB community as I am.

It begins here!
