Excellence in Teaching and Research

In recent years, Boston College has risen to new heights of academic excellence—and Light the World donors like you can continue to play a major role in that ascension.

Campaign benefactors currently help BC to attract and retain some of the nation’s leading faculty—experts who excel both in the classroom and the research lab. In addition to endowing professorships, donors are providing undergraduate and graduate research fellowships and funding specific investigations.

Thanks to thoughtful investments like these, BC students are joining with leading academic researchers to detect cancers earlier and treat them more effectively; develop innovative teaching methods to engage urban teens in science; explore how infants comprehend their environments; and bring the classical arts into modern day discussions.

Your ongoing support can ensure BC remains a top choice for top faculty.
