A college is not a collection of beautiful buildings. It is not a course catalogue.
A college is the sum of its commitments.
With this ambitious campaign, we will raise $500 million to keep three core promises to our students and their families—each of which will ensure that a Bowdoin education is ever-evolving, yet constant at its core, far into the future.
The first is a promise coming in—if you earn a spot at Bowdoin, we will find a way for you to attend regardless of your family’s financial situation, and you will be able to experience the essential elements of a Bowdoin education.
Our second promise is that a Bowdoin education will remain transformational, dynamic, and personal, as it has over the life of the College.
Third is a promise to our students as they leave—that we will provide the skills, programming, resources, and opportunity to find that first great job, and build a life of meaning.
