MtA announces fundraising campaign for $65M upgrade for Ralph Pickard Bell Library and Archives


Mount Allison University has embarked on a fundraising campaign to support $65M in upgrades for its Ralph Pickard Bell Library and Archives. The retrofits will include renovations to reduce the building’s environmental footprint, as well as the addition of digital teaching and learning resources, audio-visual media labs and broadcasting studios, an incubator space, community spaces, and an Indigenous knowledge space. MtA has received $36M in combined federal and provincial funding for the retrofits, and the fundraising campaign will help cover the remaining $29M. “Receiving the largest public sector gift in the University’s history means we can forge ahead on an innovative project that will transform the heart of our campus and significantly enhance our academic mission, as well as the student experience,” said MtA President Dr Jean-Paul Boudreau.
