Kurtz Fund

Wesley Morris

The Donald and Barbara Kurtz Fund, managed by the Office of Residential Life, supports campus events that encourage learning and discussion outside the classroom and bring faculty, staff and students together.  All Kurtz funded programs must directly involve at least one College House as an event sponsor.

In 2013-2014, the Kurtz fund supported events include:

  • Burnett House's, Winning The Minds: Travels through the terrorist recruiting grounds of Yemen, Pakistan, and the Somali border with counter-terrorism activist Francsico Martin-Rayo
  • Ladd House’s 340 Miles North: Student Art Show
  • Reed House hosts Dan McGrath, PhD (Bowdoin '06) Research Geophysicist 
  • Baxter House's Syria Talks: What's Really Going On with professors Andrew Rudalevige and Russell Hopley
