Laurentian receives $3M boost from devoted centenarian

October 26, 2016

Laurentian University has announced that it will name a proposed state-of-the-art facility the Clifford A Fielding Research, Innovation and Engineering Building. The name will honour the late husband of centenarian Lily Fielding, who announced her donation of $3M to the university earlier this week. “I cannot overstate how valuable it was to get this support from Lily Fielding and her family,” said Laurentian President Dominic Giroux. “I can say [with] confidence the building would not have become a reality without your commitment and the support of the Fielding family.” The new building will include collaborative research and development space, innovation and commercialization space, and space for Laurentian's Bharti School of Engineering.
