Our Mission / Objective

Campion College is an independent institution of higher learning. The College’s vital needs are met by the generosity of those who believe in, and actively support, the liberal arts, which are at the core of Campion College.

The Foundation is a private, non-profit organisation which supports the work and mission of Campion College through fundraising. The Foundation works closely with the college to ensure that gifts provided are directed to the most important areas and used with the greatest possible efficiency.

It is through gifts administered by the Foundation that Campion College is able to provide scholarships to students in need, the construction and improvement of key facilities on campus and ensure the quality of teaching at the college is maintained at the highest standard.

All gifts to the Foundation are fully tax-deductible.

Our Services

A liberal arts education is a traditional program of learning in Western higher education. In modern times, it focuses on four key areas: the natural sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities.

A liberal arts degree draws on these areas to provide a broad program of study that is generally undertaken prior to studies encouraging professional specialisation. In other words, a liberal arts degree aims to teach foundational skills and knowledge rather than training an individual for a particular profession or technical vocation

Benefits of a liberal arts education
Make a more informed choice about your career path
A liberal arts education introduces students to a range of subjects they may not have otherwise encountered, allowing for the discovery of new interests and the pursuit of previously ignored avenues.

Develop knowledge and skills to carry you across a range of industries
A liberal arts degree covers a broader range of knowledge and skills than a degree specialising in a single discipline. Liberal arts degrees are renowned for their ability to foster:

analytical, critical and creative thinking
oral and written communication skills
problem solving skills
information literacy skills
ethical decision-making skills
the ability to pose meaningful questions
self-confidence and self-understanding

Projects in Progress

Apart from needing funds for scholarships and Bursaries we are now
ready for the next phase of our Master Development Plan.

The Academic Centre
The next phase of our campus development includes a wing dedicated to learning (including a library and teaching spaces), a
multifunctional space for cultural events and dining,four additional residences,and an underground carpark. The architectural drawings, some examples of which are shown in this proposal, demonstrate our commitment to build lasting facilities that harmonise with the heritage listed buildings on site.
a. Library
The current library is a temporary building and many of our resources are in storage because space is limited. The new facility will be able to house the college library’s significant liberal arts collection with
a focus on history, literature, philosophy, religion and classical studies. The plans also provide for seminar rooms, office spaces and special collections.
b. Teaching Spaces
To accommodate our growing student body, we need to increase our number of teaching spaces. The plans include a lecture theatre as well as four
classrooms, a computer lab and office spaces.
c. Multifunctional Space/Dining Hall
This large space will give us the opportunity to host larger functions, seminars and events on site. We see this as an opportunity to showcase the contribution of the western intellectual tradition to the local
community through lectures, theatre and musical performances. This space will also serve as a dining hall for our residential and day students.
We ask you to consider supporting our Capital Appeal Campaign. Ways you can support:
• One off donation
• Committed pledge
• Name a space
