Philanthropy in action

Professor Andrew GriffithsInspired by your vision for a better world and made possible by your generosity, our exceptional people, innovative projects and relevant programs are creating positive change, locally and globally.

Here you will find recent stories of our shared progress – as a community of knowledge seekers and game changers – towards improving the way the world does business and solving complex societal challenges.

These stories explore how together, with your support, we are proudly transforming teaching and learning, empowering student success, and driving discovery and impact in business, economics and law.

While these stories are just a small showcase of our extraordinary collective impact, I hope they are a timely reminder that by proactively taking action, together, our greatest days lie ahead.
