Thank you to our generous leadership donors

The Faculty of Engineering is proud to honour its 2014-2015 Leadership Donors (i.e. those who made an annual gift of $1,000 or more). Our Faculty is immensely grateful to them and to all of this past year’s Alma Mater Fund donors, irrespective of the amount of their gift.
