Generous $4 million gift from Tim and Frances Price, Brookfield Partners Foundation to create real estate research and teaching hub at Schulich School of Business
The Schulich School of Business at York University is pleased to announce the establishment of the Brookfield Centre in Real Estate & Infrastructure, made possible by a generous $4 million donation from Tim Price and his wife, Frances Price, together with the Brookfield Partners Foundation.
The Brookfield Centre in Real Estate & Infrastructure will be supported by sector- related programming and a new Chair to be established in honour of Timothy R. Price’s exceptional leadership and contributions to Canada’s thriving real estate industry.
The Brookfield Centre will become the hub of real estate and infrastructure industry outreach, alumni engagement, research, teaching excellence and experiential learning at Schulich. The establishment of the Brookfield Centre will also provide funding for new professorships and executives-in-residence, while creating new scholarships and student awards.
Schulich Dean Dezsö J. Horváth said: “The Brookfield Centre in Real Estate and Infrastructure will provide Schulich students with rewarding career opportunities in the growing real estate and infrastructure sector and will generate cutting-edge research that will help shape the strategies and policies adopted by business, government and non-profit sector leaders around the world.”
“We at the Brookfield Partners Foundation are excited by this opportunity to develop future industry leaders and advanced expertise in real estate and infrastructure,” said Mr. Price. “Frances and I are personally delighted to be able to contribute in a meaningful way to Schulich’s 50-year legacy as a leading global management school as well as contributing to one of the world’s leading real estate and infrastructure programs.”
