NAIT celebrates historic $5M student contribution at CAT grand opening

October 31, 2016

A donation of $5M from the NAIT Students’ Association was officially celebrated at the grand opening of NAIT’s Centre for Applied Technology last week. The donation marks the largest in NAIT’s history, doubling a $2.5M donation made by NAITSA in 2001. Approximately $2M of the donation has supported the construction of CAT, a five-storey building that contains cutting-edge laboratories and simulation rooms. The rest of the funds will be used to centralize and expand NAITSA offices and integrate SMART ID Card technology, among other initiatives. “The overwhelming 93% support for the donation was a reflection of the fact NAIT students expect great services from their association and understand that the association needs more additional space to ensure that service in the future,” said NAITSA Interim President and Vice President John Perozok.
