Yukon University has received a $1M donation from Northern Vision Development (NVD) to support the university’s students and development. The organization has also launched a campaign encouraging Yukoners to participate in raising an additional $3M for YukonU. The initiative will focus on breaking down barriers to education, developing work-integrated learning opportunities, strengthening wellness supports, and improving classroom technology. The funding will also establish a Research Chair in Northern Governance. “The Research Chair will ensure the decades of work that has gone into developing all levels of government in the Yukon—municipal, territorial, national and First Nations—remain a critical part of Yukon history,” said NVD Board of Directors Chair Piers McDonald.
