January 13, 2015

Wilfrid Laurier University’s School of Business and Economics has received a $1 M donation from former student Bill Webb and his wife Agnes Wong. The gift will help fund the construction of the new Global Innovation Exchange (GIE) building. It was made as part of WLU’s Building Canada’s Best Business School fundraising campaign, which aims to raise $55 M for scholarships, research, new programs, and the GIE building. “Our investment in the new Global Innovation Exchange promises to help Laurier expand its ability to deliver integrated and engaged learning opportunities, while at the same time ensuring support for Canada’s future business leaders,” said Webb. A 150-seat lecture hall in the GIE will be named in recognition of Webb and Wong’s donation. WLU News Release
