Champions for innovation

The end goal of a St. Norbert education is unchanging: to prepare students fully to assume their place in the world. But the means to that end change, constantly.

As our world evolves, the way we teach must evolve. To remain relevant and impactful, we must be nimble … forward-looking … innovative in our methods and always on the leading edge of technology.

The opportunities for innovation are broad – ranging from the pursuit of operational excellence on an institutional scale, to the embrace of trailblazing instructional methods, to the transformation of facilities and equipment to keep pace with a rapidly changing world.

To seize these opportunities, your generous gift will help us secure the solid financial footing from which we can be champions for innovation at every turn.

The impact of giving

SNC’s Undergraduate Research Forum is just one example of innovative programs that support students as they pave their way for the future. See how a collaborative research project planned from scratch helped Subash Lamichhane ’21 secure his spot at a neuroscience-focused grad school.

  • “All of my professors have been the most kind and welcoming. I had Dr. Choudhury for comparative vertebrate anatomy when we were learning from home during the pandemic, and he went out of his way to make sure that he was available to answer our questions and make resources available to us. Typically, that anatomy course is very hands-on, with labs every week. But he adapted and got creative, live-streaming lab demonstrations for us.

    “I had Dr. Russel for organic chemistry. It’s one of those subjects that a lot of people would shrink away from in fear, but he was an amazing professor and it was a joy to be in his lecture every day. He’s one of the funniest teachers I’ve ever had, and the different mechanisms that he taught us to remember different things in organic were just amazing.”
