<P>H igher education has a life- changing effect on young people, irrespective of their ?nancial circumstances, and there is no better way of investing in the future. Much of our research underpins and supports the work of other charities and organisations. For example, improved detection rates and treatment of prostate cancer have been developed by scientists at Surrey which will make a real difference to thousands of patients. The University is at the cutting edge of research that helps people all over the world have access to safe water, and our new 5G Innovation Centre is leading the world in designing the next generation of mobile telecommunications. All of this is made possible thanks to the generous funding we receive from our supporters. In the last year we raised over £2 million to support research, new facilities and tomorrows talent through bursaries and scholarships. Contributions to our Annual Fund bene?t all students through improved facilities and opportunities, such as the Hardship Fund, which provides vital support to those who face serious ?nancial difficulty through no fault of their own. Bene?ciaries range from a PhD student hoping to ?nd new ways to beat tuberculosis to a talented actress who so nearly had to give up on her dream. Many of our donors are alumni who want to give something back to their university. However we are also fortunate that we receive backing from a number of companies who want to support talented students and further research. For example, BP has invested in a new research centre to improve recovery of crude oil, Santander provides scholarships for students who want to study abroad, and Fluor has upgraded chemical engineering facilities which the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (the recent Nobel Peace Prize winner), uses to train weapons inspectors. Partnerships such as these are vital for our work to continue. One of our newest and biggest investments is Investing in the future One of the challenges highlighted by the 2012 Pearce Reports review of philanthropy in UK higher education was the need for universities such as Surrey to promote public understanding of the impact we make on society – from improving young peoples life chances to offering solutions to some of the biggest issues of our times. 22Forever Surrey SUPPORTING SURREY</p> <UL><LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/1/1/">Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/2/2/">Inside-Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/3/3/">Page-3</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/4/4/">Page-4</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/5/5/">Page-5</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/6/6/">Page-6</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/7/7/">Page-7</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/8/8/">Page-8</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/9/9/">Page-9</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/10/10/">Page-10</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/11/11/">Page-11</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/12/12/">Page-12</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/13/13/">Page-13</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/14/14/">Page-14</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/15/15/">Page-15</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/16/16/">Page-16</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/17/17/">Page-17</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/18/18/">Page-18</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/19/19/">Page-19</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/20/20/">Page-20</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/21/21/">Page-21</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/22/22/">Page-22</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/23/23/">Page-23</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/24/24/">Page-24</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/25/25/">Page-25</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/26/26/">Page-26</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/27/27/">Page-27</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/28/28/">Page-28</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/29/29/">Page-29</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/30/30/">Page-30</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/31/31/">Page-31</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/445/hwrgghleg/32/32/">Back-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publications/445/x/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">site map</a></LI> </UL>
