uManitoba Students’ Union commits nearly $16M to university

September 23, 2016

The University of Manitoba Students’ Union has committed $15.9M to support a number of student-centred initiatives at uManitoba through the university’s Front and Centre campaign. The funds will specifically be used to support new student spaces, campus childcare, undergraduate research opportunities, and scholarships and bursaries for Indigenous students. “It’s incredible to see what this campaign has already done for students,” said Tanjit Nagra, president of UMSU. “When UMSU first heard about Front and Centre and its priorities, we saw an opportunity to align ourselves with the campaign. Having so many community members give back to the students has helped inspire us to give back as well.” uManitoba
