The third component of the Campaign is focused on the Williams School of Business. The University wishes to integrate the Dobson-Lagassé Centre into the Williams School of Business building and to secure the funds required to cover the operating costs of the Dobson-Lagassé Centre, which is an independent entity that focuses on entrepreneurship. These projects and other investments in the WSB total an estimated $7.5 million.
Finally, Mr. Goldbloom spoke of investments in the University’s academic programs and the array of financial aid and award programs which benefit approximately one-third of Bishop’s students. The University aims to raise $10 million for these initiatives.

The University’s goal is to raise the remaining $10 million by the end of 2016.
