Shi Wu De Professorship & Shi Wu De Community Care Bursary

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.

A search for the Shi Wu De Professor commenced late 2015 and concluded without any candidates being appointed. Emmanuel College has decided to start a new search in 2018.

The Shi Wu De Bursary Fund is created to encourage and assist students in preparing for a career in Buddhist chaplaincy in Canada.

Please contact us if you would like to make a donation to this Fund.
