alice munro chair in creativity
When Alice Munro published her first story at Western, she began a literary journey measured by creativity. Now, more than 60 years later, praise for Alice (Laidlaw) Munro, LLD’76, has risen to universal acclaim after she was awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature. In recognition of Ms. Munro’s literary career and artistic life, and her connection with Western, the University has established the Alice Munro Chair in Creativity. (more)
