A Message from the President

Hood College thrives by preparing for the future, building on our strong foundation in the liberal arts. From our early days as a leader in women’s education, we have become a highly respected college of students from diverse backgrounds across the country and the globe.

The College’s academic strength is evident on campus and in the lives of alumni. Faculty create innovative teaching methods that deepen learning. Students gain confidence and problem-solving skills. Alumni are writers, artists, elected officials, volunteers and leaders across a wide range of fields.

From today’s position of strength, we launch Forging the Future: The Campaign for Hood College. We are engaging thousands of alumni and friends who believe in the College’s mission and want to invest in its future.

We seek $65 million in philanthropic support to provide more scholarships, ensure that every student graduates world- and work-ready and further invest in our faculty. We will develop new degree programs that meet emerging needs and create new spaces in which to deliver them. And, by growing our endowment, we will strengthen Hood College for generations to come.

Your gifts will move us toward the future we envision. Please join us.

Andrea E. Chapdelaine, Ph.D.
