Campaign for UCL 2034 - fundraising for excellence
Publication date: 30 October 2014
To deliver on UCL 2034, we will need to implement effectively and to stay focused on what really matters. One of the major projects arising from our strategy is our fundraising ‘Campaign for UCL 2034’ – in essence, a campaign that is led by a combination of myself and Lori Houlihan, UCL’s Executive Director of Development and Alumni Relations, but that will, in reality, only be successful at the level that we intend, if it is understood and owned by all of us, staff and students alike.

Provost’s View: Transforming UCL takes shape
Publication date: 2 October 2014
As I have been out and about around campus in the past few weeks, I have been reminded of the unparalleled scale and pace of transformation that we are undertaking on our estate. I am also delighted to tell you that on two consecutive days, I have heard members of the academic community congratulating UCL Estates on a job well done at 140 Hampstead Road and at the new Cruciform hub. It was music to my ears.
