The Shi Wu De Professorship in Chinese Buddhist Studies was created by an endowment donation of $1.1 million to Victoria University in the University of Toronto in May 2015.
As a result of this Buddhist community donation, a Master of Pastoral Studies: Buddhism Program was established at Emmanuel College, the theological graduate school of Victoria University.
