Thompson Rivers University has announced a new name for its business school: the Bob Gaglardi School of Business and Economics. TRU President Brett Fairbairn says that this is the first time that TRU has named a faculty or school. The school is named after Bob Gaglardi, whose children donated $10M in his honour to support the construction of the new academic building. “[I]t’s important that our name embodies the principles we encourage in our students—integrity, accountability, professionalism, and hard work,” said Dean of the Bob Gaglardi School of Business and Economics Michael Henry. “This is the start of a strong partnership with the Gaglardi family rooted in our shared values, including developing ethical business leaders and entrepreneurs who will shape and grow their communities.” TRU (1)| TRU (2) Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
