Brescia principal cancels $25K welcome party, puts money into scholarships

September 9, 2016

The new Brescia University College principal, Susan Mumm, has cancelled a $25K welcome party in favour of putting the money towards student scholarships. “Everything we do here has to benefit students, otherwise, why do we exist?” commented Mumm, who added in a Brescia release that “we know that 46% of our students receive some form of financial support funded by Brescia, and I want to ensure the focus continues to be about our students and their success.” Mumm has reportedly challenged donors to match the $25K saved to establish a new $50K student award fund.
