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. http://www.emmanuel.utoronto.ca/Prospective/Academic_Programs/mpsbuddhism.htm
Dr Henry Shiu, PhD, has been appointed the Shi Wu De Professor in Chinese Buddhist Studies at Emmanuel College effective July 1, 2020. We congratulate Dr. Shiu on his appointment.
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.
