Fueling Purpose into Action
Rotman's Case for Support
Together with the entire University of Toronto community, we are inspired to tackle the impossible and transform society.
Rotman is setting its sights even higher with an ambitious new fundraising goal of $250 million as part of U of T’s Defy Gravity campaign. Through investments in cross-cutting research and teaching initiatives, we aim to develop responsible and purposeful business leaders with comprehensive support for faculty, research, teaching, and learning.
Our campaign by the numbers
Teaching and experiential learning
Developing the best and brightest students at Rotman through life-changing scholarships, curriculum innovation, and hands-on learning opportunities to build self awareness and strong interpersonal skills that are critical for all business leaders.
Building new homes for Rotman Commerce and Rotman Executive Education that feature state-of-the-art construction, sustainable design, welcoming public areas to host events and engage with the community, and innovative classrooms that support interactive and collaborative learning.
Retaining and attracting outstanding scholars through significant investments in chairs, professorships, and fellowships. With technical skills needed in the area of data analytics, innovation, entrepreneurship, sustainability, real estate, machine learning, and blockchain, additional investments need to be made to provide funding for experts with these specialized skills to supplement our core strengths.
Advancing the frontiers of management thinking through our cutting-edge research centres, institutes, and labs. These centres propel deeper learning through cross-disciplinary research on society’s most pressing issues. They educate students, business leaders and policymakers through research studies analyzing real business challenges, practical case development and training, and a multitude of events, speaker series, forums and conferences that engage the community and amplify impact.
