Trees being planted

100 trees

On 4 October 2021 we celebrated our official birthday by planting a tree as a symbol of our commitment, as a University, to promoting positive change in the local and global community.

Throughout the year we planted 100 trees across our campuses to mark 100 years of change. We invited our partners, alumni and friends to support a tree, as an enduring legacy.

The trees also carried another gift, with a proportion of the donation going to our Sanctuary Scholars fund, providing essential support to University of Leicester students who are refugees or asylum seekers.
