WINNIPEG — The University of Manitoba will receive $120 million from the province in infrastructure funding. The investment adds to the U of M’s $500 million Front and Centre campaign.

“This support will revitalize and enhance research, performance and teaching spaces on both our campuses to an exceptional degree,” said David Barnard, president and vice-chancellor of the University of Manitoba.

“The province’s strong commitment to creating high-calibre places to pursue learning, discovery and growth at the University of Manitoba will generate academic, professional and personal success for our students and community members for generations to come.”

Funding will support new buildings at upgraded facilities at the university, such as the redevelopment of the Helen Glass Centre, continuing provincial contributions to the Churchill Marine Observatory, and renewing classroom, libraries and laboratories.
