Initiative Campaign

Securing Our Global Reputation in Discovery and Inquiry

Research is central to the Queen’s learning experience. Through their scholarship, our professors, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows ask questions and pursue answers that illuminate dark corners and enrich the world.  And our undergraduates benefit from the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the world’s most pre-eminent thinkers.

The Initiative Campaign was an opportunity to help Queen’s step to the forefront of inquiry, ensuring that our researchers have the resources to explore – and expand – the frontiers of knowledge and its application.

The goal:

  • Renew our faculties with emerging leaders through the creation of research chairs, professorships, and fellowships.
  • Ensure that our research environment supports our exceptional people.

The impact:

  • 17 new research chair funds
  • 6 new professorship funds
  • 22 new faculty fellowship funds
  • 8 new post-doctoral fellowship funds
