(PDF 3.6MB)

The 125th Anniversary Advisory Committee encourages faculties, schools, institutes, divisions and student groups to engage in initiatives and activities which celebrate the 125th Anniversary over the course of the year.

The Committee recognises that some activities may incur costs beyond the immediate financial capacity of the proponents. Therefore, while our resources are strictly limited, the Committee will welcome good ideas accompanied by requests for possible assistance. In general, any aid provided will take the form of modest seed finance or co-funding of worthwhile projects.
