Excellence in Teaching and Research

What do cancer detection, renewable energy, and international conflict resolution all have in common? BC faculty and students are solving these issues and more at the Heights.
Excellence in Teaching and Research

Boston College is rising as a leading research university while remaining grounded in the liberal arts tradition.

Light the World donors help forge this unique nexus.

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, to investigate renewable energy sources, and to bring the classical arts into modern day discussions.

Your support promotes rigorous inquiry—for the social good.
