An open house on Wednesday at the University of Manitoba will showcase campus projects funded by the federal and provincial governments.

Open Doors, Open Knowledge will acknowledge a $2 billion investment by the Knowledge Infrastructure Program (KIP) in post-secondary institutions since 2009. The U of M has secured $32 million of that funding for seven of its own projects — more than any other post-secondary school in Canada.

The event will be held at the Neil John Maclean Health Sciences Library beginning at 11 am. Members of the public are welcome to attend.

Dignitaries attending include U of M president David Barnard, MPs Vic Toews and Rod Bruinooge, MLA Erin Selby, and Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada president Paul Davidson.
