Enhancing our research strengths



Western ranks as one of Canada’s top research-intensive universities. From fundamental to applied discovery and other scholarly activities, its scholars advance knowledge that provides tangible benefits for the economic, social, health and cultural development of citizens in London, in Canada and around the world.

During the Be Extraordinary Campaign, our supporters and friends helped us to build on our nationally and internationally recognized research strengths, and attract and retain the world’s top minds.

With the help of our supporters, we conducted research with real-world applications, enhanced our areas of research excellence and provided innovative learning experiences to students.
