Investing in Our Faculty
You invested more than $170 million in the College endowment to ensure new generations of Mawrters experience the academic excellence you did.
You supported faculty innovation such as the International Initiatives grant program and the 360° Course Clusters.
You endowed six faculty positions, including positions in environmental studies, chemistry, international studies, and history of art.
You helped us continue to innovate at the graduate level, including building a trauma-informed curriculum at the GSSWSR to best prepare our social work students to change the world.
We created new majors in environmental studies, international studies, biochemistry and molecular biology, and neuroscience, as well as new minors in health studies, museum studies, Asian American studies, and data science.
Propelling Our Campus Forward
You helped us invest more than $103 million in our buildings and infrastructure over the course of the campaign, including more than $25 million for new capital projects such as the Park renovation, a new dorm, and the Student Life and Wellness Center.
We have renovated Park Science Center to create new and flexible teaching and research spaces, increase student study spaces, launch a maker space, and dramatically open up the building with the Johanna Alderfer Harris ’51 Atrium.
We constructed a new dormitory with 101 single rooms and the Enid Cook ’31 Center, a residential space that also houses the Black Cultural Center (formerly in Perry House); created Perry Garden on the site of the former Perry House; and established a Digital Media and Collaboration Lab.
We are building the Student Life and Wellness Center to house our medical and counseling center, our career and civic engagement center, our multicultural center, and religious and spiritual life.
Growing The Bryn Mawr Fund
You contributed over $6 million annually through The Bryn Mawr Fund during the public phase of the Campaign and shattered records in the final year with a total of $8,028,005.
You contributed more than $100 million of the Campaign’s total directly to our budgetary needs, with almost $65 million of that through your annual support of The Bryn Mawr Fund.
You helped The Bryn Mawr Fund grow by 53% since the beginning of the Campaign so that the College can continue to adapt to the changing needs of our student and faculty.
