A big windfall for Georgian College thanks to an international auto manufacturer.
Honda of Canada has donated $1.8 million bucks in cash and in-kind donations to Georgian, in a five year agreement that would help pay for new equipment, R&D, program support, and scholarships for students.
“Honda is an advanced manufacturing leader and employer of choice with a significant presence right here in Simcoe County,” said MaryLynn West-Moynes, President and CEO, Georgian College. “Ensuring we have state-of-the-art equipment and exceptional learning opportunities in place for our students will help prepare them for the jobs of the future and today. We’ve also made a strong commitment to advance the research agenda at Georgian and across the regions we serve, and are thrilled to have Honda partner with us.”
Thirty programs in Barrie and at the Owen Sound campus would benefit from this funding.
