October 13, 2015

Manitoba has announced that it will invest $150 M in the University of Manitoba as part of the school’s Front and Centre fundraising campaign. MB Premier Greg Selinger announced the funding commitment at a press conference at the university last Friday; the investment brings the total funds raised to date by Front and Centre to more than $365 M. “We know that students want to have access to the best programming and opportunities they can, and that’s why we’re focusing our investments in key priorities areas like innovation, inclusion and teaching excellence,” said Selinger. “This investment means that Manitoba students can get a world-class, affordable and accessible education right here at home and be ready for the jobs of tomorrow.” MB | CBC
