Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Sprott Dean’s Fund supports experiential learning opportunities, student awards, special projects and investments in tools that enable the success of the students and communities we serve. The allocation of funds are at the discretion of the Dean based on projects or items that are priorities that year for the faculty.

This year, the Dean’s Fund seeks to support priorities that advance experiential learning, entrepreneurship and social innovation, diversity and inclusion and generate meaningful community impact. Whether delivering free tax services to Ottawa’s financially stressed communities, providing skills and pathways to empower underrepresented youth to access university education, helping launch cooperative businesses in Africa or creating an ecosystem of support for Indigenous-led business, funded projects will share a common commitment to the role, indeed the requirement, of business as an agent of change for the common good.

“At the Sprott School of Business, we aim cultivate the enterprising spirit of business in order to foster shared prosperity and advance equity and justice for all. We’re looking for partners in this effort and appreciate your consideration in supporting the Dean’s Fund and being a part of making this vision a reality”. – Dana Brown, Dean, Sprott School of Business
