On Wednesday, November 9, the Faculty of Arts donors VIP reception took place at Alex Trebek Alumni Hall. The event was organized in conjunction with the 2016 Charles R. Bronfman Lecture in Canadian Studies. Many donors attended, including Gilles Provost and Claude Jutras, who generously established the Gilles Provost Scholarship in Theatre. Provost delivered an inspiring and heartfelt speech about why he and Jutras decided to start an endowed theatre scholarship at the University of Ottawa.
