2023 President's Message

Your Gifts. Their Futures.

Dear friends of the University of Regina,

I am pleased to share with you our 2022-2023 Donor Impact Report, which is shaped by two defining themes, one of which is reflected in its title: Your Gifts. Their Futures.

We chose this theme because your gifts help make the futures of University of Regina students, their families, and their communities brighter and more promising in the face of challenging times. As President, I am inspired by the possibilities our donor community continues to unlock for our dedicated students, ground-breaking research efforts, comprehensive programming, and service to the wider community that surrounds and supports our University.

This ties closely into the report’s second theme, which is embodied in our institutional identity: Go Far, Together. This theme is a guiding principle for a university where success comes not only through individual talent, drive, and determination, but also by cooperating with and drawing strength from one another. One fundamental source of that strength is the philanthropic spirit that characterizes our donor community.

So just how far did we go together over the last year? I am pleased to say that we have gone – and will continue to go – a long way, in large part due to the efforts of our remarkable and generous donors. The stories featured in this report provide real-life examples of how our donors can be the cornerstone in making positive and lasting change in people’s lives – as indicated by several donor-related statistics, which tell a story all of their own.

Thank you for joining us on our educational journey. Thank you for your gifts that fuel dreams and a reimagined future. And thank you for believing we can go far, together.

Yours sincerely,

Jeff Keshen
President and Vice-Chancellor
