Report on Philanthropy 2008/2009

International alumnus Justin Chiu established Justin Chiu International Scholarship and Rita Chiu Study Abroad Bursaries in 2009


Building on Tradition Trent University has a proud and distinctive history – one that is built on a foundation of excellence and exemplified daily by our students, faculty, staff, alumni and donors. Trent is also a place that prides itself on tradition and, as the University’s new president, I consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to build on that tradition, to honour Trent’s founding principles and values, and transition us towards a dynamic new future. As a scholar, I know first-hand of the importance of collaboration and as I begin my role as president, I look forward to meeting both donors and friends of the University alike to learn more about the distinctions and strengths of Trent. I am also eager to greet members of our distinguished alumni family – both domestic and international – and I look forward to welcoming all alumni back to campus at Head of the Trent and meeting you throughout the year.

Dr. Steven E. Franklin, Ph.D., FCASI President and Vice-Chancellor

International Legacy At Trent, high quality of education and a genuine sense of community combine to make the “Trent Experience” truly distinctive. It is this experience that brings together all members of the Trent community – from international students and faculty to alumni and donors and partners. Trent graduates are truly making an impact in our world through distinguished careers and desire to make a difference. It is a lesson they learned from their time at Trent and these alumni are now choosing to invest in an institution where they feel connected to things that matter. In the last year alone, alumni contributed an incredible $2.6 million to Trent, including a generous $1 million gift from international alumnus and world-renowned property developer, Justin Chiu. Internationalization is a key component of the Trent experience. Not only do we invite the world in to study at Trent, we also offer unparalleled study abroad experiences for our Canadian students, and our faculty collaborate on critical international research projects. As always, Trent is grateful for the generosity and support of our donors, especially in this challenging economic climate. This year, we are particularly thankful to our alumni and friends who have continued to support the University, investing in our students and the future of the institution.

New Nature Trail Named in Honour of Former Board Member

4  •  Tre n t Un ive r sit y

In a special ceremony on October 3, 2008 Trent University paid tribute to John de Pencier, a long time friend, supporter and honorary board member, with the official opening of a new trail in the Trent Nature Areas named in his honour. The John de Pencier Nature Trail, a two kilometre trail located in the Canal Nature Areas on the east bank of Trent University’s Symons campus, was made possible through the generosity of Mr. de Pencier’s friends and family who established the John de Pencier Fund for Trent’s Nature Areas in 2000. Over $100,000 has been raised for the endowment.

Building on a Foundation of International Scholarship A leader in international scholarship since its inception, Trent prides itself on a long tradition of excellence that remains in full swing today.

Shawn T. Callaghan Memorial Prize In April 2009, Trent announced the creation of a new student award, the Shawn T. Callaghan Memorial Prize, to support undergraduate students who wish to pursue study abroad opportunities. The prize, valued at $1,000, was created by the Champlain College Cabinet in honour of Shawn Callaghan, a student at Champlain College who died hiking in the Swiss Alps in 2007.

“Shawn was a very adventurous and curious student, so we hope this award will inspire other students to further their knowledge and see the world beyond the doors of Trent.” Liam McGuire, Trent student and friend of Shawn Callaghan

Anonymous Donor Honours Jack Matthews In honour of founding director of the Trent International Program (TIP), a generous anonymous donor established the Jack Matthews Study and Research Abroad endowed bursary fund, totalling $400,000 to help to support both undergraduate students who are participating in a Trent Study Abroad program and Trent graduate students who hope to study and explore research opportunities in an international setting. The first bursaries will be awarded in the 2009/10 academic year through an application process coordinated by the TIP office. “Study Abroad bursaries awarded in Jack’s name continue his legacy in the most meaningful way possible.” – Celia Dyer, Trent alumna who participated in Study Abroad experience in France and studied under Jack Matthews at Pearson College.

“My doctoral project is library and archive based. I draw my research materials from different library collections, some of which are not easily accessible in Canada, which means I need to go abroad to collect materials. That is why the J. Matthews Study Abroad Bursary is very important for me; it allows me to travel to the University of Melbourne to collect research materials. It also will offer me the unique chance to meet and discuss my project with Australian colleagues.” Alexander Pershái, Trent graduate student, Cultural Studies Ph.D. Recipient of Jack Matthews Study and Research Abroad Bursary.

Past and Present Meet at Alumni House

14  •  Tre n t Un ive r sit y

Memories of almost 40 years of special times at the Champlain College Master’s Lodge were front and centre at Alumni House on November 15, 2008 when former Champlain College leaders, along with alumni and friends who had supported the Alumni House refurbishment campaign, were honoured at a special event. Over $250,000 was raised to restore and refurnish the former Master’s Lodge, as well as establish a permanent endowment fund to support future improvements to Alumni House. About 50 people gathered for the reception and luncheon, during which TD Insurance Meloche Monnex was honoured for their establishment of two student work internships, anchored at Alumni House.

Your support of varsity sport does more than support athletics – it supports student athletes. I am very thankful to have had this support during the academic year.

Gift in Kind Support (non-receipted)

More than 200 students and faculty filled Gzowski College’s largest lecture hall on October 7, 2008 to hear Yale Sterling Professor and titan in the field of global politics and development studies, Dr. James C. Scott, present the inaugural David Morrison Lecture in International Development. Robust interaction between this leading figure in political science and the Trent community was much enjoyed by Professors David Morrison and Alena Heitlinger, who created the endowed lecture series in 2007 for exactly this reason.
