Haskayne at UCalgary receives $5M for building project

March 19, 2019

Calgary businessman Rob Peters has donated $5M to the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business. According to a UCalgary release, the gift supports a $90M project that includes renovations to an existing facility and a new building for the School. A gathering space will be named after Peters. “My hope is that this space will offer the students a break from the intense schedule of their studies,” said Peters. “Surrounded by a welcoming, sophisticated and comfortable décor, this space will encourage students, faculty and staff to stop, make time to connect, support, refresh and refocus before returning to their studies.” UCalgary (AB)
