The Great Canadian Gaming Corporation is donating $1 million to support the new Segal graduate school of business.

The donation will fund renovations to the heritage building as well as the naming of a policy room. The new Segal school will house all of SFU's graduate business studies programs, as well as several new business and financial research centres and specially designed meeting space for downtown business education events.

Great Canadian Gaming, which operates Great Canadian Casinos, is the largest community-based gaming management company in Western Canada.

“As a young boy growing up, I can recall riding my bicycle up Burnaby Mountain and watching Simon Fraser's first campus being built,” says Ross McLeod, chairman and CEO of Great Canadian Gaming.

“It is an honour, over 45 years later, to be a part of the university's important expansion with this donation.” The school is scheduled to open in September 2005.
