Why should I give to a university?
Many people wonder why it is worth giving to a university. "There are other, better causes I could give to." And yet it is universities, like Oxford Brookes, which are training the specialists who will be able to work towards answers for the questions and concerns we all have.
Think about what you consider to be the top concerns in the world today. In many or all of these, solutions are being sought and found by experts working in or trained by universities. Our academics and students are involved in top-level research, working with charities and research institutions from around the world, making progress in areas of concern to all of us.
Our students are training to become the experts of the future – those we will rely on to make breakthroughs in health, climate change, conservation, addressing global food shortages, fuels and technology for the future, humanitarian aid, building stronger families, advances in education … and much more. Today’s students are tomorrow’s experts.
