WE ARE ABOUT TO CREATE A UNIQUE BREED OF ENGINEER! In May 2017, UPEI’s new School of Sustainable Design Engineering will graduate its first class of four-year design engineering degree recipients. They will be the first of their kind in Canada. From day one, these students will be connected to industry and steeped in project-based team learning through an industry-driven model based on real-world collaboration, problem solving, and innovation. Upon graduation, these engineers will be ready to excel in performance-based environments. Unique among engineering programs in Canada because of its emphasis on the design process (including how goals are achieved and their effects on people, the environment, and society), the new School of Sustainable Design Engineering will offer three focus areas: mechatronics, bioresources, and sustainable energy. The School will be housed in a new 75,000 square-foot building. Recognizing the value of the new School of Sustainable Design Engineering to the economy,* the provincial government has pledged $16 million for the School, and the federal government $6 million for the new Centre of Engineering Design and Industry Partnerships (home to centres of excellence in robotics, sustainable energy, food processing, and sensory and sortation).

The word will spread quickly. Once employers learn that graduates will be industry-ready right away to design sustainable processes, products, and solutions, it will be a distinct advantage for us. Andrew Simmons Third-year Engineering UPEI’s School of Sustainable Design Engineering and its four-year degree program are positive initiatives for our province and region. The unique focus on an interdisciplinary design process will create exciting and varied career opportunities for UPEI Engineering graduates. THE INSPIRE! CAMPAIGN will assist the University in this major undertaking by funding the latest technology and equipment for the School. This is a great opportunity for industry collaboration, innovation, and community involvement!

Through THE INSPIRE! CAMPAIGN, the University is seeking additional resources to ensure that students have access to the most advanced technology and equipment within the program. We welcome your interest and involvement.

EXPERIENTIAL AND GLOBAL LEARNING

FUNDING GOAL $7.5M FUNDED $3M TO BE RAISED $4.5M

Naming opportunities are available, and gifts may be directed toward a specific priority or priorities.

GOALS: Provide more UPEI students with scholarship and

award funding and expanded opportunities for active and/or international learning experiences; increase exposure to varied career options and professional connections; improve understanding, perspective, and confidence; position students for global success.

FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES: Scholarships and awards.

The University’s strategic plan calls for growth in scholarship funding and access for all students to participate in global and active learning experiences during the course of their studies. Scholarships recognize academic excellence and potential, and provide essential financial support and encouragement to student recipients. International and/or active educational experiences offer students opportunities to learn, and contribute, in different environments and cultures. Students gain perspective, knowledge, and confidence—and an understanding of complex issues.

A UPEI EDUCATION EXPANDS HORIZONS —BEYOND THE CLASSROOM—INTO THE COMMUNITY—AROUND THE GLOBE! UPEI has over 100 student mobility partnerships in place worldwide (including active bilateral exchange agreements, School of Nursing placements, and Faculty of Education practicums that are a requirement of the International and Indigenous Education specializations). But less than 100 students annually engage in these international learning opportunities, often due to the prohibitive cost of participation. Fourth-year Faculty of Veterinary Medicine students at the Atlantic Veterinary College benefit from experiential “internal” rotations—short-term travel supervised by a faculty member, to, for example, Kenya (dairy cattle), or the Yukon (wildlife); or “external” rotations to private clinics or research facilities, under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian. Such learning opportunities are life altering, and all require financial resources. With the generous assistance of donors who recognize the importance of active learning, UPEI will increase student participation in such experiences. On a global scale, more Nursing students will learn about critical differences in health care in other countries; more Arts, Science, and Business students will understand the importance of cross-cultural communications; more Education students will discover new ways to learn and teach; and more Veterinary Medicine students will experience a wide variety of animal care procedures, practice challenges, and research options and needs. Thanks to your support for THE INSPIRE! CAMPAIGN, more students will attend UPEI and be educated—and inspired—by active and global learning.

Studying abroad provided me with a valuable opportunity to take courses in international business, allowed me to experience unfamiliar countries and new perspectives, and make lasting friendships and connections with fellow students from all around the world! Rebecca Dawson Fourth-year Business Administration Global study offers students the opportunity to experience new cultures, political systems, and social and economic models, and to understand challenges and responsibilities. Students will develop objectivity and respect for others, and will be inspired by new ideas and experiences. I am so pleased that THE INSPIRE! CAMPAIGN will fund opportunities for more UPEI students to gain the global perspective that is so critical for success in today’s world.

EVERY DAY, THE ATLANTIC VETERINARY COLLEGE WORKS TO IMPROVE HUMAN AND ANIMAL HEALTH THROUGH EDUCATION, SERVICE, AND RESEARCH! AVC’s researchers are involved in collaborations to help solve problems and challenges affecting the health of animals and people—here and abroad. The College’s aquatic animal health team is pioneering science that will help provide the world’s growing population with healthy fish—a high-quality source of protein. Other researchers are working with farmers in Atlantic Canada and as far away as Africa and South America to improve the health and productivity of dairy cattle, thus enhancing milk quality and driving economic growth. Still others are seeking solutions to health problems affecting people—heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, epilepsy, to name a few. Built into the College’s research program are opportunities for veterinary and graduate students to work alongside researchers who are internationally renowned in their fields, thus deepening students’ skill sets and knowledge. The College’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital, the most comprehensive veterinary referral hospital in Atlantic Canada, is known for its compassionate and professional care for animals—large and small. Students learn from highly respected clinicians to provide the best possible medical care to animals—on-site in the hospital and off-site at land-based farms and aquaculture sites in the region and beyond. Veterinary science is constantly evolving, and AVC must continually upgrade to keep pace with technology. Students must have the opportunity to work with the most advanced diagnostic and research equipment so their skills exceed industry expectations upon graduation.

THE PRIDE AND SPIRIT OF UPEI ATHLETICS TRANSCENDS CAMPUS—IT’S ALIVE IN OUR COMMUNITY! camps for children, or getting together as a team to offer encouragement to a family in distress, the Panthers are involved, demonstrating the depth of their many ties to community. While excelling in athletic competition—in the 2014–2015 season the UPEI Men’s Soccer Panthers earned a Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) bronze medal, and all of our varsity teams reached their divisional playoffs or final tournaments—Panther athletes are also focused on academics. In 2014–15, 80 of UPEI’s 175 varsity athletes were named CIS Academic All-Canadians for maintaining an academic standing of 80 per cent or higher. That means 45.7 per cent of our Panthers achieved this honour—one of the highest percentages of accomplishment of any university in Canada. In addition to their academic and athletic accomplishments, many UPEI student athletes engage in fundraising activities to ensure that their teams are equipped and prepared to compete on a national level. But UPEI student athletes are busy training, studying, and serving their communities, and have little time available to raise money. To address this issue, and to support our students, UPEI seeks to establish—through THE INSPIRE! CAMPAIGN—a $4 million fund to cover the non-core costs of athletics. The fund, directed at enhancing the UPEI student athlete experience, will provide opportunities to upgrade or replace equipment, improve playing fields, and attract and develop talented athletes who recognize that the University and its community support and inspire their athletic and academic goals. Student athletes will confidently fulfill their potential while furthering the great tradition of Panther pride throughout the province and country.

17

Student athletes understand the power of teamwork, and appreciate the support we get from the Island community. When we know the community is behind us, we put in that extra effort. We have no problem fundraising for our teams, but on our own we can’t raise the amount of money needed. Support from community and donors is crucial. Cole MacMillan, Fourth-year Arts (Sociology) and Panther athlete (soccer and hockey) THE INSPIRE! CAMPAIGN will enhance UPEI’s programs and facilities, and increase public awareness of the University’s role in the community. That role includes building community pride—a positive outcome of competitive varsity sport. It’s great to see UPEI dedicate this level of attention to athletics. It encourages former and current players and coaches, fans, and the community to support the mission of Panther Sport. This campaign will also provide additional athletic scholarships and access to competitive training opportunities for student athletes. Mike O’Brien, SDU’63, BCom, CA Former deputy provincial treasurer and deputy minister of development and technology, board leader and community volunteer, treasurer of Friends of Panther Hockey, member of the UPEI Athletics Advisory Board, and former SDU Saints athlete (football and hockey)


PLEASE JOIN US IN THIS INITIATIVE Your involvement supports our students—the next generation of leaders—as they learn and excel in our classrooms and research labs, on our Panther teams, and in collaboration with partners and organizations worldwide. TOGETHER, WE WILL ENSURE THE SUCCESS OF OUR STUDENTS, UNIVERSITY, AND COMMUNITY. UPEI is an extraordinary school of advanced learning. The beautiful campus offers outstanding facilities and a safe environment where student minds are nourished by a world-class faculty. In my experience, UPEI excels at fostering creativity and producing leaders. This exciting INSPIRE! CAMPAIGN initiative will ensure that legacy flourishes to the benefit of all.

The importance of THE INSPIRE! CAMPAIGN to the goals of the University of Prince Edward Island cannot be overstated. The campaign will enable the University to build upon its strengths; enhance the overall student experience; extend UPEI’s research capacity; and, most importantly, add to the best possible environment within which students and faculty can excel. It’s very exciting!
