The 2017 Chancellor’s Circle dinner on Thursday, January 19th, marked several milestones. Guests had the opportunity to meet Cap U’s new Chancellor, Dr. David Fung, who was installed at Convocation in June 2016, and new President, Paul Dangerfield, whose investiture took place in Fall 2016. Attendees were also introduced to Cap’s dynamic and colourful new brand.
The annual dinner recognizes and thanks Chancellor’s Circle donors for their generous support of Cap U. This year’s event was held in the University’s award-winning Nat and Flora Bosa Centre for Film and Animation.
Building on the night’s theme of “Connecting through Experience,” the decor featured a huge “green screen” that brought the dinner guests into scenes from a variety of Cap U student experiences—from the mountains of Vietnam to the lofty interior of a European cathedral. Chancellor Fung delivered a heartfelt speech about his experiences studying and working in Canada after arriving from Hong Kong as a young man, eloquently conveying his commitment to experiential learning.
