2016 - Ongoing
The University of Toronto launched The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Centre for Buddhist Studies on its St. George campus in 2016. The Centre creates a university-wide locus for advancing research, teaching, and public education on Buddhism. Scholars at the University of Toronto reflect the breadth and richness of Buddhism as a global tradition, delving into Buddhist ritual, art, philosophy, medicine, and other intellectual developments and modes of practice.
The history of Buddhist studies at the University of Toronto and the Ho family began in 2006, when Tung Lin Kok Yuen, a Hong Kong-based non-profit organization established by Mr. Robert H. N. Ho’s grandmother, Lady Clara Ho Tung, provided an endowment to the university.
