Supporting excellence in research, teaching, practice and policy analysis.

To pursue our vision of academic excellence in teaching, research and practice, we must increase the number of endowed positions available to outstanding faculty members. Endowments provide stable, long-term funding for the most accomplished professors. The availability of these prestigious positions will enable us to recruit and retain the best faculty members working in the areas that are critical to our continuing success.

We envision the establishment of chairs, named for their benefactors, in social work and Aboriginal issues, mental health, neuroscience, child and human development, mindfulness and chronic health conditions.
