Business school, brain institute, & philosophy of science CRC - Joseph Rotman philanthropist obit

“The University of Toronto, and indeed all of Canada, has lost one of its greatest champions,” said U of T president Meric Gertler. “Joseph Rotman believed that each of us has a responsibility to help build civil society. He had great faith in young Canadians, in their eagerness and ability to lead the way in that cause. And he was supremely confident in Canada’s ability to compete and to contribute on the global stage.”
