A Bold Heart: The Centennial Campaign for Marywood University kicked off with a fanfare celebration in the world-class Center for Architectural Studies on Thursday, October 17, 2013. This $75 million dollar endeavor celebrates and advances the indomitable vision of Marywood’s founders, the Congregation of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
The kickoff event was a combination of joyous celebration, hope for the future, and a virtual walk through time. As part of the campaign launch, Sister Anne Munley, IHM, Marywood President, presented the campaign leadership, highlighted priorities, and shared a video of the Bold Heart Story. A special slideshow revealed artifacts from the cornerstone of the original Motherhouse, as well as items from a 1976 time capsule that was recently unearthed in preparation for the construction the new Learning Commons. In anticipation of the University’s Centennial in 2015, guests were invited to write their names on paper leaves attached to acorns. Meant to symbolize an institution of higher education that has grown, withstood challenges, and branched out with each generation, the commemorative acorns will be put into a new Centennial time capsule to be buried in 2015.
In each forthcoming issue of Marywood Magazine, specific Bold Heart Campaign priorities will be highlighted and featured, so you can learn more about each one. In this issue, we begin with the cornerstone of the campaign, the Learning Commons. As Marywood prepares for its second century of service and impact, the University will do even more, even better…together with you, and your bold heart.
For the past two years, the following leaders have worked diligently as a team to promote and support Marywood University and the Bold Heart Campaign. These individuals have guided and supported Marywood in significant, meaningful ways through the years, and we thank them for their commitment to the University and its next century. Our campaign leaders are happy to further connect you with the Bold Heart Campaign and Marywood’s upcoming Centennial.
