Never has there been a more exciting time to be a student at Shipley, nor a moment when alumni could be more proud of their alma mater.

Phase II of The Campaign for Shipley—in addition to endowment—called for a number of significant physical improvements to the campus. In all, the cost for completing Phase II is $23 million.
  • A 23,000 square-foot Shipley Commons and Arts Center on Montgomery Avenue, which completes the Upper Campus quadrangle, includes an intimate performance and conference venue, visual and performing arts classrooms, studios, and rehearsal spaces, student common areas, and a new dining facility.

  • Renovation of the existing dining room in the Main building, which houses the new Learning and Research Center (multimedia library and research facility), a new space designed for interdisciplinary learning and differentiated instruction, complete with electronic research, multi-media, and writing centers.
Constructed in the vacated squash building, a new 2,500 square-foot Rowing Center, complete with an eight-person rowing tank as well as strength and fitness equipment, will elevate support of Shipley’s rowers. The addition of this facility will be beneficial to technical instruction for our rowers and will provide training opportunities when our teams are not on the river. Multiple rowers can work on different technical drills simultaneously, providing flexible student-centered practice and skills development.
