|Message from the President and Vice-Chancellor|
The Opportunity Fund is a great success.
In raising $60 million to enhance Memorial University's programs, services and facilities, our dedicated campaign leaders, tireless volunteers and generous donors have achieved success that will benefit our students and our community for years to come. Together we have seized the opportunity to build a stronger university for the future, one that can better serve the varied needs of students and address important issues of our province and indeed humankind. From scholarships that reward and support academic excellence, to initiatives and facilities that enhance teaching, learning, research, personal development and the working environment — The Opportunity Fund will help create a better tomorrow for all of us.
To our donors, we express our heartfelt thanks for your generosity. You understood the university's pressing needs and responded most enthusiastically.
To our campaign volunteers, we thank you for your tireless efforts on Memorial University's behalf. You appreciated the university's needs and helped us explain them to those who could help address them.
To our campaign leaders, we express our deep gratitude for your thoughtful guidance and dedication. You understood Memorial University's needs and implemented a plan involving volunteers and donors to address them.
Congratulations to all on a magnificent campaign!
Axel Meisen, PhD, P.Eng.
