Heart of Huron is our most ambitious fundraising campaign ever.

Together, we’re building upon the Heart of Huron to foster intellectual curiosity, collaboration and civic engagement. This fundraising campaign, which includes a brand-new 40,000 square foot academic building, is going to nurture a generation of leaders with the compassion and conviction to navigate our increasingly complex world.

We invite you to explore the Heart of Huron to see what the future of Canada’s leading Liberal Arts university looks like. See which initiatives best align with your vision for the future, and let’s come together to redefine the landscape of post-secondary education.

Students cannot wait until they are in the workplace to learn how to balance effectiveness with empathy. By that time, their principles will already be largely formed. That’s why, Huron is the only university in Canada that requires every student to engage in volunteerism, while also connecting them with one-on-one mentorship and research opportunities that are simply not found at other post-secondary institutions.

Donations will build upon new infrastructure and increase our giving capacity to remove barriers to access for students from various socioeconomic backgrounds. Like the community-oriented students who come to Huron, from more than 30 countries, your generosity will help shape a more just, sustainable and equitable future.

Heart of Huron


Dr. Barry Craig, President of Huron

“Our world is crying out for leaders who are not only intelligent but also use ethical strategies for bringing the best out of the people and environments they encounter. To address our world’s significant challenges, we believe a well-rounded education, supplemented with a focus on compassionate civic engagement is the way to bridge the gaps between students’ drive to be successful and their desire to act from a place of care and integrity.

Right now, you have the opportunity to build upon a legacy of excellence in leadership that aligns with society’s complex needs. I hope you’ll join us in creating Canada’s most radically innovative approach to higher education.

President, Huron at Western University
