Groundbreaking: Golisano Community Engagement Center

Virtual Groundbreaking Ceremony May 18 at 11:30am

Please join us for a virtual groundbreaking ceremony and celebration with Roberts Wesleyan College President Dr. Deana L. Porterfield.

We are pleased to announce that through the generous gifts of our alumni and community we have raised $11.25 million towards the building of the Golisano Community Engagement Center! The new Golisano Community Engagement Center will serve as a student gathering space and it will house the Community Institutes at Roberts Wesleyan College.

We are excited to begin construction on this project, anticipating it to be a hub of learning, campus culture, connection and partnership with the Greater Rochester community.
