College of Arts and Sciences Dean's Fellows Program

Life-changing opportunities — in and out of the classroom.

Helping our students thrive

Rooted in our Jesuit traditions, the Dean’s Fellows Program connects students with faculty, staff and alumni, giving them access to life-changing opportunities in and out of the classroom.

In this four-year program, students work closely with Dean Bridget Keegan, PhD, MA, and members of her leadership team, building connections and developing their own leadership skills through undergraduate research, international travel and local community engagement.

Donors to this program help cover the costs of travel, study-abroad stipends, research and the $1,000 scholarships our fellows receive toward enrollment in the College of Arts and Sciences graduate program.

When you make a gift to the Dean’s Fellows Program, you ensure that we can continue to offer our tremendous students what they need to thrive — personally, professionally and spiritually.

This program has given me the skills and values to be a great Ignatian leader and prepared me for life after graduation.

Jesuit education has always been rooted in the liberal arts. It’s our tradition. It’s our strength. Now, it’s our way forward.

A foundation in the liberal arts has never been more essential. The humanities are an ideal training ground for our students to achieve personal and professional growth before they set forth in the world.

Through a College of Arts and Sciences education, our students gain a more profound sense of themselves and the world around them.

You can help us keep this transformative education thriving. You can make a difference today!
