SPECIAL SECTION - CAMPAIGN NATIONAL BANK SUPPORTS NEW INITIATIVES AT GLENDON - FIRST CLASS IN THE NEW BUILDING A generous donation of $50,000 to the Glendon College Opportunity Fund from the National Bank will help ensure that Glendon continues to build a better tomorrow for its students, for the nation and beyond. This is the first donation given for the new building already under con - struc tion at the Glendon campus. The National Bank will be honoured with the naming of the first classroom on the second floor. “Glendon has demonstrated an unyielding com - mit ment to preparing future leaders through a solid bilin gual liberal arts education since its founding 51 years ago,” said Jacques Naud, vice-president of sales and service retail, Ontario and Western Canada, National Bank. “We are delighted to sup port this fund, pro vi ding for Jacques Naud new initiatives that will have a tremen dous impact on Glendon students and re sear chers.” Jacques Naud also serves as Chair of Major Gifts in Ontario for the Glendon Col lege Leadership for Global Challenges Campaign. The Centre of Excellence for French-Language and Bilin gual Postsecondary Education in Sou - thern Onta rio is one of the key priorities of the Campaign. With a $20 million capital investment from the pro vincial government, the Opportunity Fund pro vides additional funds to help cover the costs of new initiatives. PHASE II: A GOOD START! LORNA MARSDEN: AN UNWAVERING COMMITMENT The former President of York University, Dr. Lorna Marsden, has once again demonstrated her unwavering commitment to the development of Glendon College. Indeed, she donated $25,000, which after being matched, will lead to the naming of the second classroom in the new building of the Glendon campus. Lorna Marsden Thanks to Dr. Marsden’s gift, this class will be named after Philippe Garigue. President emerita Marsden was an admirer of his work and is very pleased to contribute to his memory. Mr. Garigue died in 2008 and was, according to the homage paid to him at the time of his death by current Glendon Principal Kenneth McRoberts," a leading re sear cher in the world of sociology and anthro pology, a man prepared to challenge conven tional wisdom and to defend vigorously his own." Former Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Montreal, Philippe Garigue was also Principal of Glendon College from 1980 to 1987. The former student lounge in York Hall that was named after Philippe Garigue in York Hall was recently sub divi ded into two clas ses. The generous gift of Lorna Marsden, herself a sociologist by training, will therefore make it possible to continue to honour the memory of Philippe Garigue with the naming of a classroom in the new building currently under construction.
