Inspiring Creative Teaching and Learning

We are committed to asking questions. This kind of exploration is an essential component of both our liberal arts focus and our Jesuit identity. That’s why we will ensure that faculty and students have the resources they need to get the most out of the liberal arts experience.

We will enable faculty to provide innovative, interdisciplinary learning experiences in the classroom and the lab. When recruiting top-tier faculty, we will offer them comprehensive support for their research and teaching ambitions. And we will create more key tenure-track faculty positions and invite more distinguished visiting artists and scholars to campus.

A significant part of this effort is an emphasis on the arts. In addition to increasing and diversifying our arts programs, such as the interdisciplinary Arts Transcending Borders and CREATE LAB initiatives, we are constructing the ambitious and comprehensive performing arts center, destined to become a focal point on campus.

The new facility will include a 400-seat concert hall and a 200-seat flexible performance space, plus technology to support creative interactions between the arts and other disciplines. The Center will be named for Neil Prior ’56, whose $25 million gift supports arts programs at the College.
