Where can I give?


Manchester teachers are exceptional, and we want to support their professional development to a greater extent. Additional resources for their research not
only create richer teaching content, they also give faculty the ability to reach their potential as
academic experts. In turn, they are better able to put
our students first by producing learning outcomes that prepare them for graduate school and career success.



I can tell you exactly the turning point. When I knew I would succeed in medicine and be able to help people. It was when my professor sat by my side and helped me understand organic chemistry.

They work side by side – learn together, research together, serve together, even explore the world together. Ask Manchester University students or graduates what they value most about their Manchester years and they are likely to say the mentor-friendships of their professors.

Whether you talk to alumni from the class of ’49 or the class of ’09, the stories of encouragement and inspiration are the same. They recall teachers at Manchester who helped them realize their potential, pointed them in the right direction, believed in them before they believed in themselves, or simply changed everything.

Personal attention is the Manchester brand. It’s what we do best – and it’s something we do better than other colleges and universities.

Many of our students choose Manchester over large universities because they value the time and attention they know they’ll get from faculty. When students arrive here, their teachers don’t think of them as numbers, but as people with names – and dreams.

Manchester continues to put students first when we recognize the vital role that faculty play in our students’ lives. When we support faculty in research and professional development, we directly help students. Stronger teachers create a richer educational experience for all students. THE BENEFITS >
