A message from the Chancellor
Undeniably, our University is an inspiring place at the forefront of research and learning. It is collectively energised by the people who are part of our community of scholars, and our donors and benefactors form an integral part of that community underpinning our success.
The generosity of the University’s donors and benefactors in 2010 was, as always, tremendously heartening. So too was the sheer number of donors, with many thousands of generous individuals and organisations supporting us.
The stories in Sydney Annual demonstrate the true impact which our donors and benefactors have on the University and, indeed, Australia. This year’s inspirational stories cover a breadth of disciplines and initiatives, from diabetes research and chemotherapy patient support, to initiatives in Indigenous communities, through to research and education in international security and human rights.
It gives me great pleasure to thank and honour all of the University’s donors and benefactors. Your belief in the University of Sydney and the power of research and education is truly commendable. Indeed, it is a most valuable investment in our nation.
Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir AC CVO
