School of Design
George Brown College's School of Design is expanding to an exciting new facility in the Daniels Waterfront - City of the Arts development, East Bayfront, Toronto. The new facility will provide 103,000 square feet of space for hands-on learning and collaboration, both among students and with industry partners.
It will house the Interdisciplinary Design Studio, Institute without Boundaries, as well as the Innovation Exchange, a research hub where students and businesses will team up and bring new ideas to market. The facility and the programming offered are designed to meet workforce demand by providing specialized, industry-identified skills training.
"Smart economies are productive economies. In support of Canada's science, technology and innovation strategy, George Brown is connecting industry with innovators in order to promote innovation and industry growth," said Anne Sado, President of George Brown College. "By creating opportunities for students to solve real industry problems in highly-engaging learning environments, George Brown is supporting them to become candidates of choice for their future employers."
George Brown College is undertaking a bold expansion that includes the completion of the Daphne Cockwell Centre for Health Sciences at the Toronto Waterfront, expanding our capacity and funding new scholarships for students. This $250 million Campaign includes $60 million from private donations.
