Since its founding 20 years ago, St. John’s College has been a home away from home for more than 1,500 graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and visiting scholars from over 100 different countries. Inspired by our founders, the alumni of St. John’s University Shanghai, St. John’s College seeks to nurture global citizens who embody the values of generosity, justice, academic excellence and service to society. To celebrate our 20th year, we invite you to make a donation to the college.
At the core of life at St. John’s are events that bring the “The World Around Our Table.” This sense of community is central to our goal of inspiring a global vision among our residents, our alumni, and all those who participate in our programs and activities. Regularly-organized talks and forums on current events build upon the college’s international diversity as well as UBC’s global scholarly expertise. Social and community building events provide opportunities for the new generation of Johanneans to learn from each other in even deeper ways. Drawing upon the strong bonds of trust and communication developed within the St. John’s community, fellows and guests are able to discuss difficult, often contentious, issues in an atmosphere of mutual respect in which everyone listens to and learns from each other.
These timeless traditions define the St. John’s experience and prepare Johanneans to contribute as global citizens wherever their futures take them.
To support St. John’s College, we invite you to consider the following three funds, which have been established with the ongoing goal of benefiting St. John’s College and its students:
- The St. John’s College Student Emergency Fund supports St. John’s College students in times of emergency or financial need
- The St. John’s College Alumni Legacy Fund supports community building activities at the heart of the St. John’s College residential experience
- The St. John’s College Fund supports other college core academic, artistic, cultural and outreach activities.
Your gift to St. John’s College will ensure that the college can continue to shape and nurture new generations of globally-minded scholars who are equipped to face today’s complex world, and who can carry forward the spirit of “Light and Truth” that inspired our founders. Thank you.
