A $10 million gift, the largest gift ever received by the University of Regina, has led to the naming of the Paul J. Hill School of Business and created a unique relationship with the Ivey Business School at the University of Western Ontario
"The Hill School of Business and its approach to education will excel in the development of quality graduates who will contribute both economically and personally to creating a strong and prosperous future both nationally and internationally," said Paul Hill, president and CEO of the Hill Companies and Harvard Developments.
The Hill School, focusing on undergraduate business education, is an important addition to the programs and research focus of the Faculty of Business Administration at the U of R.
"Paul Hill's vision, backed by this investment, will create tremendous opportunity on our campus," said U of R President Jim Tomkins, "As we move forward, we will look for additional ways for alumni, government and the business community to contribute and reap the benefits of this important moment."
Hill's investment establishes the school's new identity and also creates a unique $2.5 million relationship with the Richard Ivey School of Business, located at The University of Western Ontario, Canada's premier business school. It will focus on the "business case study" approach to education for which Ivey has become internationally recognized.
"This unique relationship with the Ivey Business School firmly establishes the U of R as home to one of western Canada's leading business schools," said Garnet Garven, Dean of Business at the U of R. "The Ivey reputation is well earned and well respected by Canada's top business leaders."
In addition to advancing the reputation and expertise of the Paul J. Hill School of Business, Hill is establishing a set of scholarships to help students excel. A $612,000 donation will create the Hill Scholarships in Business Ethics. An additional $587,000 has been donated to Campion College, to establish the Paul and Carol Hill Scholars in Catholic Studies. Campion College is a Jesuit liberal arts college federated with the U of R.
The Paul J. Hill School of Business offers a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA). The Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business offers a Master of Business Administration (MBA), a Master of Human Resource Management (MHRM), and a Master of Administration in Leadership.
