*** NOTE ***
On Oct. 23, Concordia University was pleased to receive a gift of $500 000 from Manulife Financial. The donation, presented by Roy Firth, Manulife Financial Executive Vice President, Individual Wealth Management (at left), will be put toward a professorship in financial planning, as well as the construction of a 120-seat amphitheatre in the new JMSB building. The amphitheatre, equipped with the state-of-the-art audio and visual technology, will serve as a classroom and public lecture hall.
“This is an important investment in education by a leading financial institution," said Concordia President and Vice-Chancellor Judith Woodsworth, "and a further recognition by the business world of the quality of teaching and research at the JMSB.”
