Support Florence 2017/2018

 

Friday, April 28, 2017

Following a meeting with students who had been selected to participate in the Florence Program for the 2017/2018 academic year, as well as some of their parents, President Diamond and the Executive Team have committed to proceeding with the program this year.

Earlier in April, the 2017/2018 Florence Program was suspended for review as part of the budget reduction process. Students and some parents proposed raising funds to allow the program to proceed this year. The President and Executive Team met with this group to listen to their proposals.

Impressed by the students’ and parents’ passion and commitment to fundraising for this cause, the Executive Team has agreed to proceed with the program this year. The Development office will work with a coordinated group of students and parents to support and extend the fundraising campaign already launched by the students.

Parents and other supporters have also volunteered to support the effort to gain enhanced provincial government funding for OCAD University. 

The program will be suspended for 2018/2019 while we conduct a thorough review.
