MSVU exceeds $12-million goal in capital campaign

April 10, 2013

The Mount Saint Vincent University community, donors, and honourees gathered Tuesday to celebrate the more than $12 million raised in the Project TWENTY12 capital campaign to build the new Margaret Norrie McCain Centre for Teaching, Learning and Research. The centre will be the university's first new classroom facility in more than 40 years. Led by the single largest donation in MSVU's history ($2.25 million) courtesy of Margaret McCain, the fundraising initiative brought together hundreds of donors in support of the new academic centre, which will honour the lives of women throughout. The president of MSVU's student union expects students will appreciate how the 4-storey, 49,600-square-foot building will incorporate innovative technologies into teaching and research spaces designed with future student needs in mind.
