York University has received a $4M gift that will be used for a variety of upgrades and initiatives on campus. The funds will be used to upgrade the Victor Phillip Dahdeleh Building, provide CIFAL York with operating funding, and support the development of a new Advanced Disaster, Emergency and Rapid Response Simulation initiative facility. The gift was provided by alumnus and philanthropist Victor Dahdaleh and his wife, Mona Dahdaleh, through the Victor Dahdaleh Foundation. “The [Victor Dahdaleh Foundation’s] generous investment will allow York to expand capacity for research and training in areas of particular importance to the world, through health and disaster and risk management, but also to further York’s commitment to actioning the UN SDGs,” said YorkU President Rhonda Lenton.
