Pingree's programs are robust and evolving; our faculty is talented and committed; our students are engaged and ambitious; and our academic spaces offer state-of-the-art opportunities for teaching and learning. What, then, do we need to further deliver on our mission and to ensure that we thrive well into our second half-century?
Arts and athletics are fundamental components of the Pingree experience, and it is imperative that the facilities for these programs reflect the commitment we demonstrated in building our Academic Center (opened in 2004), a learning environment that continues to have a transformational impact on the Pingree student experience.
Our new fieldhouse, scheduled to open in September 2014, will provide state-of-the-art facilities that will enhance our coaching and will help us get our students home earlier.
As Art Department Head Monica Brile states, "The new art facilities have been designed to be specific to our unique programs and artistic philosophies. These spaces will enable even greater participation, collaboration, and exploration in every arts discipline. The undeniable success of our current programs is due in large part to the energy, vigor, and humor that is the essence of the Pingree environment. With new spaces that are so thoughtfully designed and equipped with the best artistic and educational materials for each art discipline, the learning experience will be truly outstanding."
