Philanthropist Yosef Wosk’s most recent gift to SFU will support a new student learning commons in the Belzberg Library at the Vancouver campus.

The $75,000 donation announced last month follows Wosk’s $100,000 contribution last year to launch the Yosef Wosk Student Learning Commons at SFU’s Surrey campus.

Student learning commons are one-stop shops for academic support, offering in-person and online workshops, drop-in tutorials and individualized assistance to ensure that students achieve success in their academic and professional careers.

“Academic learning is demanding,” observes Wosk. “Students need to have sharp written and verbal communications skills, a high level of computer literacy and the ability to efficiently research topics using a wide range of print and electronic sources. SFU’s student learning
commons help students achieve these skills.”
