The Power of Engagement

To celebrate SFU’s 50th anniversary, we’re making a landmark commitment to become one of the world’s most engaged universities.

But we need your help.

Our Power of Engagement campaign aims to generate $250 million for a series of inspiring initiatives in three strategic areas: engaging research, engaging students and engaging community. With your support, we’ll build our next 50 years on a strong foundation of dynamic engagement.  

Here's what we're planning:

Engaging Research

Creating new research chairs and professorships. Help us attract and support leading researchers who not only bring tremendous levels of expertise and knowledge to SFU, but have the ability to mentor students and lead multi-organization research networks that leverage the knowledge and strength available throughout our community.

Engaging Students

Increasing undergraduate and graduate bursaries and scholarships. These help us attract and retain top students, reward academic excellence and ensure a mechatronic systems engineering education is accessible to all who qualify. We are seeking donors to fund awards in specific program areas as well as those wishing to create named awards.

Engaging Community

Strengthening young people’s exposure to mechatronics systems engineering. This includes school outreach programs as well as university clubs and summer camps. Our Engaging the World endowment fund will also support students and faculty on volunteer programs in developing countries.
