Thanks to a multi-million dollar gift from the Jarislowsky Foundation, Western will continue to build its influence in central banking upon an already storied past in the discipline.
Announced Monday, the $2-million endowed gift, matched by Western, will establish the Stephen A. Jarislowsky Chair in Central Banking in the Department of Economics, with the aim to encourage excellence in teaching, mentorship and research in the field of central banking.
The Jarislowsky Foundation, based in Montreal, was founded by Canadian businessman and philanthropist Stephen A. Jarislowsky in 1991.
“Our main aim and focus is excellence. We try to do things in areas which make people in our age think,” Jarislowsky said. “When I look at your chair, it was designed to make you think about central banking. Central bankers have achieved an enormous influence on the lives of all kind of countries.
“I hope this chair will lead to better central bankers, better government and better handling of finance around the world. That is a big objective.”
