April 2, 2012

The University of Toronto's Faculty of Arts and Science recently kicked off its $250-million campaign. Unprecedented for an arts and science faculty in Canada, the fundraising initiative is a major component of uToronto's $2-billion "Boundless" campaign, which has already raised more than $1 billion. "We will seek philanthropic support to expand our innovative undergraduate programs that promote interdisciplinary thinking, first-year learning communities, international learning experiences and research opportunities. We will also seek to bolster our scholarship endowment to ensure access and opportunity to our undergraduates, and attract the best domestic and international graduate students," says the faculty's dean. The faculty has already raised $142 million, which is 57% of its goal. uToronto News
