AIM receives P10M donation honoring late Leni Panganiban

The Asian Institute of Management (AIM) proudly announces the receipt of a generous 10-million-peso donation in loving memory of the late Professor Elenita “Leni” Panganiban. This heartfelt gift from her family celebrates her legacy by funding the naming right of AIM’s Chapel and the creation of a new case room named after her – the Leni Panganiban Case Room.

“We are deeply grateful for this generous donation made in loving memory of Professor Leni Panganiban,” said Dr. Jikyeong Kang, President and Dean of the Asian Institute of Management. ” Through their gift, her legacy will continue to shine brightly within AIM.”

Professor Panganiban was highly respected at AIM for her dedication to teaching and support for students. For over three decades, she served as AIM’s first female professor and associate dean. Her passion for education and caring nature left a lasting impact on students, guiding them both academically and personally. Alongside Fr. James Donelan, SJ, she dedicated herself to enhancing the Chapel, quietly contributing time, attention, and resources to its development and maintenance.

Her family, including husband, retired Chief Justice Artemio V. Panganiban, hopes she will be remembered for her wisdom, strength of character, love for family, and deep faith.

Prof. Leni Panganiban passed away on Easter Sunday, April 9, 2023, but her memory continues to inspire the AIM community. The Institute extends its heartfelt thanks to the Panganiban family for their generosity and commitment to honoring the memory of Prof. Leni Panganiban.
