Provide a transformative education that engages the whole student and prepares them for a changing world.
Lawrence provides an education for the whole student, from classroom learning with world-class faculty to personal development through wellness, career advising, and learning opportunities on the shores of Lake Michigan at Björklunden. We aim to make strategic investments in programs and activities that affect every student during their time at Lawrence, both inside and outside of the classroom.
“Brilliant scholars, gifted artists, selfless teachers—the faculty of Lawrence University are simply unparalleled in their dedication to their students and their disciplines. It’s not just the intense, one-on-one engagements that unfold in the studio, the lab, and the classroom—though that’s a big part of the Lawrence difference. It’s also the commitment to growth and exploration, realized in the creation of new courses and the development of whole new areas of study. Our initiatives in Cognitive Neuroscience, Innovation & Entrepreneurship, Global Studies and the College-Conservatory collaborations born in Collage testify to the intellectual and creative courage of faculty eager to test the limits of their skills and knowledge, to see what they can learn together, and to pass that knowledge and courage on to their students.”
The student journey is a core component of the Be the Light! Campaign.
Through strategic investments in academic programs and student life—including spiritual and religious life, wellness, and career exploration—we are educating and engaging the whole student.
Lawrence focuses on educating the whole student. This includes helping students learn to find balance as well as opportunities for growth in health and wellness, including spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical health. Providing world-class support in this area is a key element in helping Lawrence attract, support, and retain students.
Life After Lawrence
We know the ultimate goal is not just graduation but what our alumni do after they graduate. Investments in “Life After Lawrence” are transformational for Lawrentians and help to ensure that they are able to flourish as they pursue careers, graduate studies, service, and civics in a rapidly changing world. We seek funding to endow the Dean of the Center for Career, Life, and Community Engagement, and provide additional support for internships, career exploration, and curricular development.
