Your Gift at Work
Your investment in the Heart of Huron campaign will have immediate tangible effects on our school's ability to deliver an education that will develop the next generation of great hearts and minds.
Our ambitious fundraising targets are not aimed at fostering a "someday" vision. With your support, we're taking action right now to ensure our students and community-at-large have the spaces and resources they require to discover the answers to human questions that have yet to be addressed.
See how your generosity is contributing to living and environments that will foster critical thinking, creative problem solving and a passion for civic engagement.
We look forward to celebrating Canada's most revolutionary model of post-secondary education when we open the doors to the brand-new
Heart of Huron.
Our Community is coming together to build the Heart of Huron
"Since we launched our Leaders with Heart mission two years ago, the response has been overwhelming. Our application numbers have more than doubled. We have raised our entrance standards such that they are now among the highest in Canada. And yet, even-larger numbers of qualified young people are being drawn to Huron. Despite nationwide declining enrollment in most Liberal Arts universities, Huron continues to grow.
Why is that? This generation of young people are not satisfied with standing by when they need to act to reduce suffering and improve the lives of others. They are demanding a different kind of education - one that will prepare them for a future none of us can even begin to imagine - and Huron is delivering on their demands.
Our university is breaking the ivory tower traditions to guarantee every student paid internships, encourage volunteerism and put as much emphasis on character building as we are cultivating superior educational experiences. We are developing Leaders with Heart, and we're inviting you to join us in pursuit of this radical, but essential mission."
