A MESSAGE FROM THE VICE-CHANCELLOR
The University of Sydney is defined by its success. It is a place where students and researchers are engaged together in a community of scholars and thinkers, where excellence in research and education is prized because of the benefit it creates for Australia and the wider world.
Recently a number of visionary gifts have enabled us to move more quickly towards our goals. Increasingly, passionate philanthropic support is vital so that the University, as an agent of change, can continue to pioneer cutting-edge research and provide world-class education. The University of Sydney’s work in these areas makes a substantial impact across the global community.
The 1850 Society has been established to recognise the ongoing substantial support that allows the University of Sydney to maintain our reputation for excellence. Creating the 1850 Society helps bring our academic community closer to our most important donors, maintaining our vision of the university as a place where networks of original thinkers gravitate and innovate.
