It was announced late last week that Culver-Stockton College was the beneficiary of a $1-million gift.Part of a $1 million gift made to Culver-Stockton College in honor of President Kelly M. Thompson will go toward the construction of an experiential learning facility on campus (see above).

The announcement of the gift from an anonymous donor was made Thursday afternoon in Pepsi Hall at the J.E. & L.E. Mabee Recreation and Wellness Center on the Culver-Stockton College campus.

The Center for Experiential Learning will be built as an addition to the south side of the Gladys Crown Student Center. Approximately half of the $1.25 million cost for construction of the center has been raised.

The center will highlight the seven types of experiential learning — creative expression, leadership, simulations, service learning, travel, research and innovation and professional experience — that are the cornerstone of Culver-Stockton’s educational experience. It will provide resources on experiential teaching and learning for faculty and students, and it will provide a showplace for experiential learning achievements.
