Connect The Community forever faithful to Roberts & Rochester

The Connect the Community campaign began in August 2019 with a $7.5 million gift from Paychex founder and philanthropist Tom Golisano to build the innovative new Community Engagement Center. The gift is the largest in Roberts Wesleyan’s 157-year history. The 26,167-square-foot two-story center will be a hub for connection, collaboration and student life resources. It will be the first building on campus to provide centralized meeting spaces and community interaction opportunities for all students. Construction on the building is almost complete, with a grand opening on January 23, 2023.
