In the last year, the generosity of donors provided:

  • More than $1.4 million in student support.
  • 85 per cent of our students with experiential learning opportunities.
  • More than 7,600 square metres of collaborative learning and study spaces in our new Software and Informatics Research Centre.
  • Resources for students to create their own businesses and innovative products.
  • Events and activities that promote students’ positive health and well-being.

“National Philanthropy Day is a great day to celebrate the work of individuals, corporations and community organizations who give, volunteer and advocate for our students,” says Debbie McGarry, Executive Director, Advancement and Alumni Relations. “Their generosity serves as both motivation and inspiration, helping our students develop into the leaders of tomorrow.”
