Thank you

A word of thanks from the Vice Chancellor

Philanthropic donations help Lancaster deliver its mission of improving and enriching the human experience, whether through our research or through direct support of our students.

The UK’s higher education sector has undergone profound change in the past three years, not least in terms of funding. It is no exaggeration to say that philanthropy has an increasingly key role to play in shaping life on campus, supporting the next generation of students and helping us to deliver life changing outcomes from our research.

I hope that you will continue to offer your support and friendship to Lancaster and help us to do even more to shape the future.

Professor Mark E. Smith
Vice -Chancellor, Lancaster University
