About Dr. Marsha Hanen:
Dr. Marsha Hanen served as the first female President and Vice-Chancellor of The University of Winnipeg, from 1989 to 1999. In her role as president, Hanen was instrumental in the advancement of UWinnipeg’s growth and development strategy. During her tenure, notable accomplishments include: the passing of The University of Winnipeg Act, which had been highly sought after since the University’s creation in 1967, establishment of a full Bachelor of Education program, and the opening of both the Bulman Student Centre and the acclaimed Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall.
Hanen’s exemplary work has earned her many grants, awards, and honours, including induction to the Order of Canada and a Fellowship in Law and Philosophy at Harvard University. Her solid academic credentials, consultative leadership style, and inclusive nature were well recognized throughout the university community.
Celebrating A Legacy At UWinnipeg:
On Friday, June 15, 2018, The University of Winnipeg renamed a prominent corridor on campus to recognize the distinguished legacy of Dr. Marsha Hanen. For her lasting contributions and continued support, UWinnipeg is proud to permanently rename the Spence Street Mall as Marsha Hanen Way.
The Marsha Hanen Global Dialogue and Ethics Fund:
The Marsha Hanen Global Dialogue and Ethics program was established in 2005 with a generous donation from Marsha Hanen CM. Dr. Hanen intends her gift as the inaugural contribution to the establishment of a Global Dialogue Fund in support of the activities of The University of Winnipeg's Global College. This fund will support the open expression and dissemination of ideas and respectful discussion by providing an interdisciplinary forum for faculty-initiated research and dialogue on relevant topics of the day such as ethics, human rights and responsibilities; women's issues and women's global roles; local and international community needs; freedom of expression and civil liberties; citizenship and participation in globalization and democracy; responsibility and security; global corporate responsibility, ethics and governance; impacts of science and technology; and global public health issues.
Our goal is to raise $20,000.00 for the Marsha Hanen Global Dialogue and Ethics Fund. Your contribution, big or small, will go a long way in helping us support students at The University of Winnipeg.
All gifts are tax deductible.
If you prefer not to make a gift online, you can also send a cheque payable to The University of Winnipeg Foundation.
