Unprecedented generosity

Thank you for setting a Giving Day record

Beloiters always come out in force to support our students, the college, and each other. This year’s record-breaking Giving Day raised $1,108,590! Your support is crucial and shows an outstanding commitment to our community. We can’t thank you enough. A special shout-out to our Board of Trustees for its generous dollar-for-dollar match up to $580,000.

“Simply put, I give because I love this place,” said Trustee Joanna M. Kutter’95. “It is part of my past, my present, and, with your generosity, it will be a part of our future together.” 

Thank you, Beloiters, for being all in. Because of you, the College will continue offering a vibrant future for our students.

The banners that changed Beloit

A new photo gallery in the Powerhouse chronicles the story of the Black Lives Matter banners on the Kang and Keefer pedestrian bridge during the summer of 2020.

The banners, approved by the City of Beloit, are just the tipping point in Beloit’s ongoing anti-racism work, which is fundamental to our educational mission and to building a stronger campus community.

Where Cognitive Science and Comic Books Converge

Cognitive Science Professor Robin Zebrowski finds creative ways to use the art and storytelling style of comic books to engage students with Cognitive studies; everything from Artificial Intelligence Ethics to the philosophy of the human mind.

“The comics in the classroom is something that I originally started thinking about when I had to teach an ethics class… I started thinking about how superheroes and supervillains are just ethics, writ large.”
