Magazine showcases University's influence

Edinburgh Friends magazine lets the University's supporters know about the real impact of their philanthropic gifts. The latest edition includes articles that reinforce the University's varied and wide-reaching influence in research, teaching and the community.

Edinburgh Friends magazine edition 9

From the University’s research into cancer, significant work on eye health, and the impact of arts courses, the magazine highlights how staff and students are making outstanding contributions to the community and, indeed, the world, with the help of generous philanthropic support from alumni and supporters.

How we can make a difference

Published annually, Edinburgh Friends updates donors, supporters and subscribers on a year of University activities and the impact of past philanthropic support and other forms of engagement, ongoing commitment and participation. It highlights pioneering teaching and research and poses questions and shares challenges that the University considers vital in addressing local and global issues.
