Vision Innovation Passion Campaign
A Gift to the Future of Champlain College
Remember the times you hurried up the hill on Maple Street to get to class and stayed up late talking with friends in Pearl Hall? At Champlain, you built a portfolio, found a direction for your dreams and discovered more reasons to love winter.
Thousands of alumni have called Champlain home. Like you, they've pursued a career-focused education that has prepared them for a full life. Today's students share that passion to succeed.
Your gift to Champlain is essential to ensure that the College remains vibrant and rich in the resources students need to develop their dreams: topnotch faculty, cutting-edge technology and scholarships that make a Champlain education accessible to all.
Our $25 million comprehensive campaign-Vision. Innovation. Passion.-is well under way, but we need your support to meet the significant challenge of our goal. Join the many alumni whose memories of Champlain inspire their passion and support for the College, graduates whose individual gifts motivate others to give and engage with Champlain.
This is your Champlain. You make it happen.
A community of learning open to all
To date, generous supporters of Champlain College have donated $17.5 million.
This funding has supported many student scholarships, the renovation of Perry Hall as our Welcome and Admission Center, and our flagship academic programs like Bring Your Own Business (BYOBiz), The Center for Digital Investigation, The Emergent Media Center and The Center for Financial Literacy. There is more to be done.
Champlain College is committed to empowering students to achieve their career ambitions through need- and merit-based scholarship support.
Without question, students are our greatest asset. Providing support for those with academic potential, yet without the means to pay, is among Champlain's highest priorities.
Scholarship funds ensure academic excellence by enabling the very best students to attend the College-regardless of their ability to pay.
Center for Communication and Creative Media
With your capital support, we will expand digital creative-media work spaces and fine arts studios, and build a public art display through construction of a "creative commons."
Expanding the imagination of our students inspires them to develop a vision and engage with the world. A new 40,000-square-foot Center for Communication and Creative Media will provide space and technology to support students and help attract expert faculty, so Champlain can continue to stimulate minds and spirits.
Exploring new worlds...together
Like our namesake, Samuel de Champlain, who navigated beyond the boundaries of the known world, the students, faculty and staff at Champlain College are discovering the horizons of educational and career success in our changing world.

"We're preparing students for the next 50 years during which creativity, interdisciplinary collaboration and media will play even larger roles in career success."
- Jeff Rutenbeck, Former Dean, Division of Communication & Creative Media
The proposed Center for Communication and Creative Media would be located adjacent to the Hauke Family Center.
