The University of Strathclyde was founded by an exceptional act of philanthropy through a legacy from Professor John Anderson to establish "a place of useful learning".
Our engineering heritage has given us the desire to build - both literally and metaphorically - to translate high quality research into real outcomes: products, businesses, changes in policy. Our resolve is not just to have innovative ideas, but to make them a reality. To do this, we must attract world-class academic minds and the brightest and most deserving students, equipping them with the best facilities and tools for discovery.
To gain new heights in research, learning and global engagement requires much greater resource and investment is needed from all our communities - our alumni, staff, partners, students, parents and friends from all over the world.
Please join us and help us attain our ambitions in research, learning and international engagement, make positive changes locally, nationally and globally.
The Campaign for Strathclyde supports both our overall strategic aims and five key priorities which reflect our areas of greatest strength. Gifts supporting the Campaign move the University forward with purpose, helping current and emerging projects fulfil their potential.
ENERGY AND SUSTAINABILITY
Global energy requirements are growing rapidly, and creating and consuming energy at current rates which will eventually be catastrophic for both the global economy and the environment. We must develop new energy solutions, increase production from low carbon sources, improve energy efficiency and increase access to energy for the world's poorest people - but from sustainable sources.
Strathclyde is creating the new £89 million Technology and Innovation Centre that will forge new collaborations with industry and other external partners. Researchers will collaborate on an unprecedented level to solve problems and create new products in energy and sustainability as well as other key sectors.

The design and construction of the building has been fully funded, but we now need to secure funds to fit out and equip the building to the highest standards.

TRANSFORMATIVE HEALTH TECHNOLOGIES
Drawing on our expertise in engineering, economics and psychology and our strengths in chemistry, pharmaceutical science and microbiology, our multi-disciplinary teams are developing technologies for new drugs, medical devices and diagnostics as well as assessing their economic impact, effect on quality of life and their ability to inform policy on key health issues.
Our Centre for Bioengineering for Early Life will be unique in the UK and focus on developing pioneering technologies to help save children’s lives. Our researchers are currently working on an implanted device that will help children with congenital heart disease and reduce the need for invasive operations and their associated risks.
On-going engagement with NHS and industrial partners has already produced a number of other patented technologies for further development.
We are seeking funds for key staff positions, research programmes and equipment.

BUILDING BETTER COMMUNITIES
Strathclyde has been bound to the community it serves for more than 200 years. We have educated countless generations of civic, business and professional leaders from all backgrounds. Taking our lead from our home city’s reputation for enterprise and intellectual vigour, Strathclyde is energetic and innovative, with an international outlook and partners and students from around the world.
We want to ensure Strathclyde equips graduates to solve real-world problems and deliver lasting benefits to the communities in which they work - and that their learning should, in the words of our founder - “be useful”.
Strathclyde University’s award winning Law Clinic deals with a range of emotive and pressing issues impacting on clients’ lives. Students are exposed to invaluable hands on practical experience while helping some of the most vulnerable members of our society who cannot afford legal representation and do not qualify for Legal Aid. A broad range of community projects also help to break down barriers to justice.
The Clinic has become a victim of its own success and is now having to turn both clients and student volunteers away. You can help fund key staff post or individual community projects.

Family-owned enterprise is the major business model in the world and impacts hugely on the economy. In Scotland, 73% of all businesses are family-owned. With family business comes unique issues and complex challenges.
The International Centre for Family Enterprise, based at our leading Business School, will create programmes, support policy development and combine advancement of knowledge and best practice with the immediate and direct education and application to those who need most to implement it.
We are seeking funds to support the setting up of the Centre and its operating costs for the initial four years.

TALENT FOR TOMORROW - INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARSHIPS, EXCHANGES, FELLOWSHIPS AND POSTGRADUATE STUDIES
Leadership in tomorrow’s global marketplace will require a confident and resourceful graduate workforce, with internationally-influenced knowledge and a developed understanding of cultural differences.
We wish to offer our home-based students the opportunity to study and work abroad. Overcoming the challenges of living overseas, adapting to a very different culture and different teaching methods and perspectives, gives the students added maturity, a greater sense of self-reliance and a new perspective on Strathclyde and Scotland. For many, it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience which both provides focus for their future careers and differentiates them from other graduates in the job market.
We also must provide opportunities for students from around the world to come to Strathclyde and allow them to establish and develop international collaborations and present work to the global community of enquiry, in addition to providing work placements and projects to bring them closer to employers.
To secure, support and reward the very best research and teaching talent, we seek to create a number of new professorships, “rising star” academic positions and Masters and PhD studentships in our priority areas.
You can help by supporting a travel exchange programme, postgraduate scholarship, research fellowship or Professorial Chair.
