StFX receives $15M for Victor Phillip Dahdaleh Hall


St Francis Xavier University has received a $15M gift from Dr Victor and Mona Dahdaleh to support the creation of the Victor Phillip Dahdaleh Hall. The hall will house the Victor and Mona Dahdaleh Institute for Innovation in Health, which will incubate health research. The institute will be one of six national co-ordinating centres for the determinants of health across Canada. StFX President Dr Andy Hakin said that the funds are considered the “final piece of the puzzle,” which will allow StFX to move forward with the construction of the building. “This is the single largest gift ever made to StFX by a private donor, and we could not be more grateful,” said Hakin.
