Your Generosity is the Greatest Gift

We see the impact of giving each and every day, but it's your generosity that is the greatest gift of all. Your gift has the power to make a difference in the lives of our students and further the impact the University has in communities, throughout Canada, and around the world.

As we approach our 50th anniversary and look ahead to the next half century, one thing that has not changed is how much students need places to come together and discover a deep sense of belonging to our university. Together, through our commitment to revitalizing our campus spaces, such as the AdHum Conversation Pit, we can shape a campus where inclusivity, excellence, and a sense of belonging are not just concepts but tangible realities for all.

I had trouble paying for my tuition, but the scholarship I received provided tremendous financial relief to my family and me. When I told my mom, she was so happy and hugged me and started to cry.

Donor Spotlight: Senator Marty Klyne

Senator Marty Klyne DAA’84 and BAdmin’86 and the Klyne family have been generous donors to the University of Regina for many years. They established the Klyne Family Award in 2020 to support students pursuing a Journalism degree. With the Journalism School taking a one-year pause to redevelop and reimagine its programming and curriculum, it is expected to come back stronger than ever in 2024-25, ready to prepare future journalists for the challenges the field faces in the 21st century. Learn more about Senator Klyne and his motivation to give back.

Easing the burden

A pilot project called PSPNET was launched at the University of Regina in 2019 that offers firefighters, police, corrections workers, EMTs, and other public safety personnel a different avenue for accessing mental health support. Thanks to funding from the Medavie Health Foundation, PSPNET was able to expand its services and offer supports in Saskatchewan, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and PEI.
