Throughout our 90 year history we have demonstrated our confidence in the power of imagination and collective action to shape the future. We are now on the brink of new possibilities for Reading, and we invite you to join us. Together, we can attain some of the most significant endeavours imagined by the university. We have set a campaign goal to inspire our supporters to give 60,000 hours of their time by 2020, together we can achieve this.
Volunteers are passionate about contributing to the continued success of the university and lives of its current and future students. They join us at different stages of their careers, and from a variety of different sectors, they support us in many ways; giving advice and expertise to our various projects, they mentor our students and employ our graduates and most of all they serve as shining examples to future generations.
Imagine what we can achieve with your support.
We are now at the frontier of new possibilities for the University of Reading. Your support will build our research strengths and support students, and will promote and enable new partnerships and innovative approaches. With your help, we can have a real and tangible impact on the critical challenges that face society now and into the future.
Universities are living things: they feel, think and do. They are centres of intelligence; they are concerned with ideas; they have outposts upon the frontiers of knowledge; they sometimes do beautiful and remarkable things; they dream and imagine.
