Catawba College is undertaking a MIND, BODY, SOUL Campaign to upgrade facilities and begin new programs, ensuring that the college is fully prepared to grow and retain students by providing 21st century opportunities.

We are proud of our successes. Today, 96 percent of our Class of 2017 graduated either with a job or with acceptance to grad school. This campaign will help us ensure that this trend continues. The college’s promise to students: “A transformative education with inspiring people in a place where you belong.”

The campaign reflects that reaching one’s full potential requires the education of the whole person, according to Brien Lewis, President of Catawba.

The MIND portion of the campaign involves financial needs of the academic program in order for Catawba to thrive, recruit and retain students. The college plans to raise $28 million for projects in the MIND area of the campaign.

“An education is more than just facts and information learned in a classroom. It is about using knowledge to do things you could not do before, to experience in a new way, and to create that which is bold and unique. That is the true Impact of a Catawba education.” ­

— Constance Rogers-Lowery, Ph.D. Provost/Professor of Biology

The BODY portion of the campaign will enable Catawba to achieve our goals by improving facilities that match our expectations for students. The college plans to raise $6.9 million for projects in the BODY area of the campaign.

“The Newman Park renovations will greatly improve our baseball recruiting capabilities. The new amenities will provide a better playing surface and bigger playing field. The bigger field dimensions will entice pitchers to want to come pitch for Catawba.

The new locker room will provide players with first class dressing area, shower facilities, and a place that each baseball player can call home. Seating upgrades will make the fans more comfortable. The new protective netting will not only provide safety, but will also provide better visibility to the games they are attending.”

The SOUL portion involves financial needs for Omwake-Dearborn Chapel and its Cassavant Organ and an endowment for spiritual enrichment of the student body. The college plans to raise $3.3 million for projects in the SOUL area.

“After 50 years of standing at the head of the Catawba campus, the Chapel, built to the glory of God and in honor of Catawba benefactor, Mr. Julius Abernethy, continues to be a facility that enables students, community members and visitors to experience a closeness to God as they experience its beauty and symbolism. For 25 of those years, I have walked through this beautiful edifice almost every day on the way to my study and each time I enter it, I still feel a sense of awe as the morning sun pierces the chancel window, casting slivers of multi-colored light across the pews and through the arches, light that proclaims anew the wonder and presence of God in our lives.” ­
