OAC alumni plan new endowment

The Ontario Agricultural College (OAC) Alumni Foundation has launched a $1.25 million endowment campaign to mark the 125th anniversary of the college’s two-year diploma program.

OAC currently has about 800 students at four University of Guelph campuses. The campaigners plan to call on over 5,000 OAC diploma grads now living in Canada, and will also appeal to agribusiness, government and other organizations for support of the endowment.

The campaign, under the theme “Leadership for a new era,” aims to fund an endowment to support teaching innovation, scholarships, field trips and “experiential learning” for OAC students.
