DONOR REPORT 2009/2010

Welcome A message of thanks from the Vice-Chancellor

It gives me great pleasure as Vice-Chancellor to welcome you and introduce you to the new edition of our Donor report 2009/2010. My sincerest thanks go to all the alumni, parents, staff, ex-staff and friends of the University of Kent whose gifts to the University over the past year have enriched the lives of our students through the funding of many projects, scholarships and other activities described in this donor report. The University of Kent has always been renowned for its inspiring, friendly and collegiate atmosphere and this welcoming approach has helped us to gain many supporters over the years. I hope you enjoy reading about the many benefits your donations have brought to the University of Kent and that, like me, you are proud to have played your part in this way to ensure that Kent remains one of the UK’s leading universities and the UK’s European university.

Professor Dame Julia M Goodfellow DBE, CBE

News Ambitious and student-focused projects at the University of Kent The University of Kent Law Clinic and Mooting Chamber

A pioneer of clinical legal education in the UK since the 1970s, Kent Law School has grown dramatically over the last ten years and is now one of the largest departments in the University, with about 1600 students across three campuses, including over 260 postgraduates. Recently, the School has enjoyed a sustained period of success across the full range of its activities. An outstanding result in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise places the School sixth in the UK in terms of the quality of its research. It also has an excellent teaching record with an innovative curriculum; this has resulted in exceptional National Student Survey satisfaction ratings. The excellence of the education and the social and practical benefit to society provided by the Law School are demonstrated by two intrinsic features of studying law at Kent: the Law Clinic and the Mooting Programme. Both are critical to the development of the well-rounded law graduate. The School has always emphasised the study of law in its social context and with regard to issues of social justice, and one of the finest expressions of this approach is the Kent Law Clinic. This delivers a firstclass and exciting legal education to undergraduates through the provision of a free legal service to the community. However, such is the success of the

School that more and more students every year choose to study here, but cannot take full advantage of what the Law Clinic has to offer: the present facilities are in desperate need of expansion and updating. The popular and relevant Mooting Programme is similarly hampered by its lack of any proper ‘home’ – an appropriate, authentic and dedicated space in which the formal activity of mooting can be properly carried out, so as to deliver its learning and teaching objectives most effectively.

the University is embarking on a £5million fundraising campaign for a greatly expanded and modern Law Clinic with suitably designed offices and a dedicated Mooting Chamber. These will provide a prominent draw for prospective students and staff, and expand the important work being achieved within the wider community. If you are interested in supporting the University’s new Law Campaign please contact Hilary Edridge (H.A.Edridge@kent.ac.uk or 01227 824041)

The challenge therefore, is to continue to innovate through the development of new, exciting strands of practical work, and to make these learning opportunities available to more students. To achieve this,

Long service – anonymous gifts The University wishes to thank all those staff who have generously donated their long service awards to fundraising projects on the campus.

Student Media Centre A £500,000 fundraising campaign is underway to equip the University of Kent with a new Student Media Centre boosting Kent Union’s standing as one of the most innovative student unions in the country and giving students new skills. Since the opening of the University, Kent Union has provided students with many ways to get involved in a range of media opportunities. InQuire, previously KRED and InCant, gives students the opportunity to be part of the research, design and development of their own newspaper. Similarly CSRfm a studentled FM radio station which replaced UKCR in 2007 engages students with all aspects of running a radio station from technical setup to presenting a show. Whilst all volunteers currently do their best with the resources available, facilities needed for students to gain experience in the field of media are not up to standard. A purpose built Student Media Centre would allow students to expand their knowledge and gain real experience using industry level equipment to produce traditional print and radio plus delve into the world of digital broadcasting, giving Kent students the edge in the competitive jobs market. If you are interested in supporting the University’s new Student Media Centre please contact Louise Dancy (L.Dancy@kent.ac.uk or 01227 824825)

Launch of the University of Kent in Paris The launch held in March 2010 was attended by principal officers of the University, including Vice-Chancellor Professor Dame Julia Goodfellow, as well as students and distinguished guests from France and the UK. These included representatives from the British Council France, Columbia University in Paris, Sciences Po Paris, The British School of Paris and student information organisation AngloINFO. Located at Reid Hall in Montparnasse, the University of Kent at Paris offers innovative and unique interdisciplinary Masters courses in: Comparative Literature; English and American Literature; Film Studies; French and Comparative Literature; Modern French Studies; and Postcolonial Studies. Students enrolled on these programmes will divide their year’s study between Canterbury and Paris.

DBE for Vice-Chancellor Professor Julia M Goodfellow CBE, FMedSci, FinstP, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Kent, was appointed DBE in the Queen’s birthday honours, announced on 12 June 2010. The award is for her services to science.

Known as ‘the UK’s European University’, the University of Kent is renowned for its close links with top-ranking French and other European universities, its large European student population and the fact that it is the only UK university with a centre in Brussels. Professor Alex Hughes, Pro-ViceChancellor said: ‘We are delighted to launch our new Paris centre. Offering our students the opportunity to study and work abroad is a vital part of life at the University of Kent.’ Professor Peter Read, Academic Director of the University of Kent at Paris, added: ‘Our first intake of postgraduates are currently enjoying their spring term in Paris, so this is a good time to celebrate the exciting opportunities that the University of Kent at Paris offers to UK, European and other students from around the world.’

DONOR REPORT 2009/2010

Campaign reports New Centre for Music Performance to be named in honour of benefactor Music plays an important part in student life at the University of Kent and philanthropy is helping to support its ongoing development. Those students who take part do very well in their degrees and we are watching the professional careers of many of our scholars with great pride. In 1996 Sir James Colyer-Fergusson made a generous endowment to the University of Kent, through his charitable trust, to refurbish the seating in the Gulbenkian Theatre and to support the musical life of the campus. He also left a generous personal legacy when he passed away in 2004. Sir James was an extraordinarily kind, gentle and generous man. He was educated at Harrow and Balliol College, Oxford, then enlisted as a Captain in the East Kent Regiment. His working life was spent in the railways, becoming Passenger Officer to the South East Division of British Rail’s Southern Region and later Parliamentary and Public Correspondent to British Rail.

He was keen on trains and travelled everywhere by rail if he possibly could. Sir James’ two other passions were Kent and the arts. Since 1997 the University of Kent has given an annual concert in Canterbury Cathedral in Sir James’ name so that successive generations of students can make music in his honour.

The generous donation of £4.5 million from the Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust has enabled plans for the new centre for music performance to be realised. Designed by the award winning firm, Tim Ronald Architects, the new venue will be a flexible space able to accommodate the range of musical activities and develop new performing opportunities for the University community in the future to be opened in Summer 2012.

Music Scholarships The Richard Scase Music Fund Many current staff and former staff of the University are committed to supporting talented students at Kent through personal philanthropy. One example is Richard Scase, Emeritus Professor of Social Policy at the University of Kent. Richard has a broad range of interests in the general areas of work and employment. He has written and edited more than twenty books and over eighty academic articles on subjects including the changing nature of employment relations; managing creativity; and the

6

impact of globalization on national, regional and local economies. However in addition to his wide-ranging academic interests, Richard has also demonstrated his personal enthusiasm for developing Kent students further by creating a fund for extra-curricular activities through Music: ‘I enjoy all kinds of music – classical, opera, world – but have a particular penchant for Sinatra-style and Big Band. I am keen for young musicians and their audiences to learn and appreciate the heritage of all music forms and discover

where their own passion lies. Supporting the talents of young musicians at Kent is a great way to achieve this aim.’


DONOR REPORT 2009/2010

Scholarships The University of Kent’s Scholarship Campaign has been the focus of 2009/2010, shaping lives and making a real difference, not just for our students but also our donors and the wider world. The University has a number of scholarships in different fields – academic, music and sport. Many exist thanks to personal donations made by individuals and some are set up in memory of former students or staff. The individual donor “My wife Pamela and I took up our postgraduate courses at Kent a few weeks after retiring. The donations we have made to support current students through the Kent Scholarships Campaign have come from a sense of gratitude for all we received from Kent, and an awareness of the far greater financial burdens that students have to carry today.” Robert Lunnon, Darwin ’96 “I really enjoyed my time at Kent studying for a degree in history and English and gained a huge amount from it, including a new interest in Anglo-Saxon and medieval history. I feel it is important to put something back and I thought that joining the Kent Scholarships Campaign and making a regular donation would be the ideal way of doing this by giving other students the chance to benefit in the same way as I have.”

The corporate donor Media giants Sky News and the BBC celebrated outstanding journalism at a special event at the University of Kent on Wednesday 3 March 2010. The Bob Friend Memorial Scholarship is the product of a unique agreement between Sky News, the University and the Friend family. It was created in memory of Bob Friend, the Sky presenter. The scholarship is awarded annually to a first year undergraduate in the Centre for Journalism and covers tuition fees for the first year. It also offers a four week work placement at Sky News. The winner is chosen by a panel comprising members of the University, Sky News and the Friend family. The donor of the scholarship (Sky News) also supports the annual Bob Friend Memorial Lecture, at which the scholarship is awarded. The current

recipient of the award is Daniel May, BA Journalism. Following his lecture Mark Thompson, Director-General of the BBC presented Daniel with his award. Mark Thompson was appointed DirectorGeneral of the BBC in May 2004, after being Chief Executive of Channel Four since December 2001. He had previously worked at the BBC for more than 20 years, becoming Director of Television in April 2000, responsible for the management and running of all BBC network television channels Competition between the demands of studying and funding the costs of both study and of daily life is a challenge for many students. On behalf of all our recipients, thank you to all of you who donate to support them.

DONOR REPORT 2009/2010

Legacy gifts The Susan Cohen Doctoral Scholarship was established in 1997 by Mr Maurice Cohen in memory of his wife, Susan, who graduated from the University of Kent in 1991 with a degree in Italian and Comparative Literary Studies. Maurice Cohen sadly passed away in March 2008, leaving a notable legacy to the University of Kent. The Susan Cohen Doctoral Scholarship Fund was built through contributions to an endowment plus a significant donation made during Maurice Cohen’s lifetime. The Fund now makes provision for an annual postgraduate research scholarship for subjects within the School of European Culture and Languages. Maurice Cohen’s generous gift of scholarships is a fitting tribute to his wife’s memory. During his lifetime a one-off scholarship was awarded through special provision, but the first official recipient of the Fund is Patricia Hodges, MPhil French, the first of many to benefit from Maurice Cohen’s generosity.

The Christine and Ian Bolt Scholarship was established in 2005 by her husband, Ian Bolt (above), in memory of Christine, who began her career at the University of Kent in 1966 and became ProVice-Chancellor and Professor of American History. Sadly, Ian passed away in 2008 and left a remarkable legacy in support of this scholarship. The fund was then renamed The Christine and Ian Bolt Scholarship. Ian was a close friend of the University of Kent and took an active interest in the selection and progress of all scholars of the fund. He was generous with his personal time, supporting the development of information booklets and attending planning meetings at the University. He firmly believed in education and championed the notion of fundraising

to support students in their educational endeavours. The Bolt Lecture has also been established and is now an annual event. The Christine and Ian Bolt Scholarship has supported and continues to support many postgraduate students in their research in the USA. Research fields have so far included the public understanding of President John F. Kennedy’s legacy, psychopathology in chimpanzees and the Irish novalist and poet James Joyce among others. The current recipients are: Lia Betti, PhD Anthropology and Oliver Ayers, MPhil History Eleni Loukopoulou, above (2007/8 scholar) said that “… without this scholarship I would not have been able to visit the James Joyce archives in the USA and study the material, much of which is unpublished”.

New scholarships 2010 The Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation Scholarship (Postgraduate Scholarship in Film, Visual & Performing Arts). The School of Arts at the University of Kent, with the support of the Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation, has a new scholarship available for the 2010/11 academic year, for a Hong Kong resident graduate studying any of our taught Film MA programmes: MA Film Studies and MA Film Studies (Paris). The University offers a comprehensive and expanding range of scholarships in order to encourage academic excellence and we are very grateful to The Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation for their recent gift.

The David James Boxing Scholarship David James was one of the University’s former Director of Sports who sadly died a few years ago. He was a National Boxing Coach and renowned in his time. The University is grateful to John Horton, one of David’s former boxing pupils, who contacted the University with a view to setting up the David James Boxing Scholarship in his teacher’s memory. Alex Cooper was

awarded the first scholarship and the photograph above shows him being presented at the Benefactors’ Garden Party with a boxing manual written by David James many years ago (the donor is also featured within the manual). This is hopefully the start of a fund that will grow over time, assisting the University Sports Scholarships as a whole to grow in profile, and support boxing scholars at the same time.

REPORT TO DONORS 2009/2010

Gifts to Faculty Ostia Excavations John Beale is making a significant gift to one of our leading archaeologists, Luke Lavan, to fund a further excavation at Ostia, the harbour city of ancient Rome. Luke is the Director of the Centre for Late Antique Archaeology, an international research group focusing on the study of all aspects of life in the Mediterranean/ Byzantine world from c. AD 300 to c. 650, which is broadly from the time of Constantine until the Arab Conquests. In addition to publishing the post-excavation report, this gift will also enable Luke and his team to communicate their progress over the web. This was a fairly large excavation of 35-40 people, offering a great opportunity and experience to new graduates.

“Having completed my paid internship on ‘Ostia, Port of Rome’, I think I can safely say that I have come away from it with some highly useful skills, a bit more confidence, and something interesting to draw upon in potential job interviews. It was interesting to see what is done with the data collected by archaeologists on site, including that collected by the excavation team of which I was part. This was a good worthwhile experience and thankfully I was able to obtain a paid job with Wessex Archaeology almost immediately on completing my internship. Lauren Figg, CLAS graduate 2009

Alumni and former staff gifts Alumni fundraising – Hong Kong and China Portal 21 October 2010 saw the Hong Kong launch of our flagship Hong Kong and China Portal Project. Kent has longstanding links with Hong Kong, and enjoys substantial relationships with Higher Education institutions in mainland China. These connections with partner universities and with our alumni in the region are flourishing. This initiative aims, not only to grow our current scholarship and hardship support for students coming to us from Hong Kong and China, but also to enhance opportunities for Kent students to partake in study/work placements in Hong Kong and mainland China. Equally, we are keen to foster new research interactions between Kent and institutions in the region, for example in areas such as Sino-European relations. The Hong Kong and China Portal is a significant new fundraising project for the University, which builds on our strong international relationships and ethos, and supports the internationalisation of both our students and our staff.

The University of Kent in America The University of Kent has a long and happy association with students and staff from the United States. Many alumni have described their experience at Kent as “life transforming”, intellectually, culturally and socially. As a consequence, increasing numbers are committing to a Scholarship for $1million that will enable future generations of US students to experience the benefits that can only be derived from an education at Kent. A new Development and Alumni Relations Strategy for the US will build these relations even further. These include establishing local chapters in the US, creating a programme of regular events in the US and much more. We are grateful to our friends and colleagues in America for all their support.

Former Staff Association

The First 500 Scholarship The First 500 Scholarship will be funded entirely by the first students to study at Kent in 1965. The Scholarship has been established to commemorate the University’s 50th Anniversary in 2015, as well as their own entry into University life. This pioneering group have chosen to preserve something of the spirit and advantage from the early years for future generations of Kent students – the freedom to think and challenge; opportunities to innovate and create; and the possibility to start working life without excessive debt. The University is extremely grateful for the continued support of the First 500.

The University’s Former Staff Association was established in July 2008 at a meeting attended by over 100 former members of staff, both academic and administrative. A liaison group was formed and an active programme of events planned, including monthly lunches in Rutherford College, an annual lecture and AGM, and other activities including Cathedral tours, garden visits and concerts. The Former Staff Association have also taken on an active role in fundraising for the new Colyer-Fergusson centre for music performance, raising funds from various musical activities including ‘Folk by the Pond’ at Keynes College, a concert by the Laurie Kay Trio and summer vacation choral workshops. The University is sincerely grateful for the ongoing support of the Former Staff Association and their commitment to supporting music at Kent.

Kent Scholarships Campaign Nurturing talent

The University of Kent has grown from just under 500 students in 1965 to a leading UK institution today with five campuses and close to 20,000 students. The University is renowned for its strong European and international impact, offering students an inspiring experience whilst valuing innovation, enterprise and creativity. Graduating with debt is a major concern for many prospective students. These financial pressures can deter gifted individuals from pursuing their ambitions. For some, only a scholarship could make this opportunity a reality. For others, scholarships provide the motivation behind a determination to work hard and be the very best. The Kent Scholarships Campaign (KSC) was launched in March, 2009 to increase the number of scholarships on offer at Kent. The KSC embraces a broad range of scholarships, including The Alumni Postgraduate Research Scholarship,

12

hardship bursaries, music scholarships, Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology (DICE) scholarships, Brussels scholarships, the Postgraduate History Research Scholarship and a number of benefactor named scholarships. Besides creating opportunities for the very best students regardless of financial circumstances the telephone campaign enables a wide range of alumni to build a relationship with the University and contribute to the building of its reputation in the UK, Europe and Internationally.

A Call for Support This autumn, the University’s annual telephone campaign will be supporting this fund, with current Kent students keen to swap stories and share the latest news with Alumni, whilst collecting vital donations to support the programme.

Telephone fundraising callers – Thank You We owe a huge thanks to all our student callers. Whilst they do get paid for their hard work, without them there would be no Annual Fund. We are fortunate to have such talented and outgoing students willing to spend their evenings working with us.

Financial information 2009/2010 Supporting your University

To take a closer look at the generous support you gave to the University last year we wanted to present you with some of the facts and figures:

Dear Friends I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who has supported us. In 2009/2010 alumni and supporters of the University donated almost £2.5 million to Kent. The following pages of this report illustrate some of the many ways your gifts are making a difference. All British universities are facing tough times ahead and the situation is no different for Kent. During these challenging times the support of our alumni, staff and friends is of great importance. I have been fortunate to meet many of you over the past year at many events and have been encouraged by your affection and support for the University.

The total amount donated to the University in 2009/10 was £2.49 million, an increase of £1.2 million on the previous year. £1.8 million of this year’s donations were to the Colyer-Fergusson Building. Additional income was received from dividends and interest of £193,000 and gains on the sale of investments of £4,000, with the remaining £4,000 in the income total comprising of transfers between funds.

This year’s total disbursements were £381k down from £1,3 in the previous year, though this figure includes £983k of capital expenditure and the difference excluding this is £11,000. A loss on the sale of investments of £440,000 this year has occurred as the University has changed stockbrokers and is now investing its funds in a new asset endowment portfolio managed by Schroders Charities.

I am also very pleased that the University will be launching its Leadership Giving Circles in 2011/2012. Many leadership supporters are already giving generously of their time, energy, expertise and financial resources to help Kent excel. Our Leadership Giving Circles will acknowledge and honour individuals who make exceptional donations thereby continuing to support every aspect of University life, enriching the lives of our students and enhancing the University’s notable reputation. I hope to meet many of you during the coming year, and thank you once again for your continued support of the University of Kent. Professor Keith Mander, Deputy ViceChancellor
