The Esther and Ken Tencer Research Project Centre is the first named space in Carleton University’s Nicol Building

Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business is proud to announce the naming of the Esther and Ken Tencer Research Project Centre in the Nicol Building, Sprott’s future home.

Ken Tencer, alumnus and entrepreneur, and his family donated $50,000 to support a new research project centre where faculty and students at the Sprott School of Business can collaborate with partners from business and industry on leading research projects. The Esther and Ken Research Project Centre is the first space in the Nicol Building to be named.

“I am grateful for the friends and mentors made during my years at Sprott and I am pleased to support future generations through the Research Project Centre, set to facilitate major research projects between faculty, students and partners from the business community,” said Ken Tencer, BCom/87, who also serves on the Sprott School of Business advisory board.

“We thank Ken and Esther for their generous support of this enhanced space for research collaboration in the Nicol Building,” said Linda Schweitzer, interim dean of Carleton’s Sprott School of Business. “The Esther and Ken Tencer Research Project Centre will expand our capacity for collaborative, interdisciplinary and global research at the Sprott School of Business.”

Currently under construction, the Nicol Building will deliver an inspiring and collaborative learning environment in which students and faculty at the Sprott School of Business and Carleton University can work together with business and the community to find creative solutions to the challenges facing business and society.
