The Dean's Society

The Dean’s Society honours a powerful global network of generous donors whose investment in the vision and leadership of Rotman has enabled the School to achieve prominence in Canada and the world. Members of the Dean’s Society are our most generous annual leadership donors and they exemplify the power of our alumni network.

Every year, more than 300 alumni and friends make a gift of $1,000 or more to the Rotman Annual Fund. Their generosity places them among an exclusive group of donors: The Dean’s Society. Together, members of the Dean’s Society form a powerful global network of leaders who support the brightest minds, cutting-edge resources and world-class support systems. Rotman is a place that brings people together to ignite change.
