When you invest in the Haskayne Capital Expansion Project, you are laying a new foundation for the next generation of business leaders. Together, we will create a physical legacy for business education – a place where students will experience unparalleled learning opportunities, where scholars will deliver more innovative research, and where we can gather with the community to create meaningful connections.
Investing in the business school of the future
The Haskayne School of Business is preparing tomorrow’s leaders for an unpredictable future. These problem solvers will be nimble and resourceful and ideally equipped to tackle the unforeseen challenges of a changing economy. We know change is coming rapidly – whether it is disruption from artificial intelligence, alternative energy technologies or new business models – and Haskayne students will be the critical thinkers with the practical skills to rise to the challenge.
At Haskayne, we deliver a future focused, world-class business education; it’s time for our facilities to catch up. This is a critical time for the school to expand in support of our strategic growth and bold vision. The Haskayne Capital Expansion Project includes a second building, Mathison Hall, and enhancements to our existing space, Scurfield Hall.
In June 2018, Calgary business leader and philanthropist Ronald P. Mathison made a $20 million gift, spearheading the philanthropic funding for this ambitious project. In his honour, the new building will be named Mathison Hall.
We are seeking additional philanthropic investments to complete the new building and enhance the existing Scurfield Hall. These new facilities will be a state-of-the-art home for the Haskayne School of Business – not just for today, but for generations of bold leaders to come.
The following giving opportunities are available:
An expanded home for Haskayne -- Gifts of any size
Combined support from you and other donors in our community will make the Haskayne Capital Expansion a reality, fueling the construction of Mathison Hall and renovations for Scurfield Hall, from foundation to rooftop.
Collaboration spaces -- $100,000 - $250,000
With an emphasis on transparency and with large windows to allow an abundance of natural light, we are striving to create functional and inviting spaces where education is fully visible and accessible. Syndicate rooms will offer bright, appealing places to work in small groups. Meeting rooms and student lounges will enable student clubs, staff and faculty to connect and collaborate.
Leading-edge classrooms -- $500,000 - $750,000
Our aim is to deliver all business courses at Mathison and Scurfield Halls. The Haskayne Capital Expansion Project will bring 11 new classrooms ranging in size from 40 to 80 seats. These technology enhanced classrooms, including a trading and finance lab, will be configured for innovative teaching and learning.
Convening places -- $1 million - $2 million
Mathison Hall will be a home for students, faculty, staff and community with spaces for many needs in addition to teaching and learning: quiet focus, group work, socializing, eating, gathering and engaging with our community. Key spaces include:
- A 300-person event space
- A social staircase
- Student commons
- Business library
