The journey toward academic excellence and self-discovery is an individual quest for every student. It needs to be. And it is incumbent upon every institution of higher education to provide the best opportunity, in the most conducive environment possible.
For some students, that environment challenges, inspires, and enables them to think beyond four walls and to act beyond perceived barriers.
An intentional living-learning environment will spark ideas and foster skills—debate, compromise and integrated thinking—that can change the world.
As an exemplary residential liberal arts college, Albion is positioned to provide innovative, hands-on learning environments so that our students can engage with their education and their peers in meaningful ways. Imagine a place where creative and talented people with diverse backgrounds and areas of interest gather, share ideas, and challenge each other to be the best they can be.
Munger Place, a 55-unit coed student apartment building, is being reconfigured to enable students from all areas of study to join their peers in collaborative, interdisciplinary teams for a summer, semester, or year of living, learning, and doing together. Students will assemble and apply as a team with a collective mission. As these teams wrap up their experience, they will help spread the model throughout campus—making Munger Place Albion’s round-the-clock “laboratory” for a truly immersive liberal arts education.
A gift to support this specialized community of learners will help ensure that Albion College continues to lead, offering the deepest and most enriching learning experiences—like Munger Place—that a residential liberal arts education can provide. Your gift will help fund the programs and provide the teaching tools and direction that will make this a distinctive learning experience for today’s Albion students.
A gift of $100,000 will permanently endow a learning experience for five students. A gift of $5,000 will create a one-year learning experience for five students.
