The Center for Social Impact

FAQ's about The Center

List of 5 items.

  • What is The Center for Social Impact?

    As a Catholic, Augustinian school, we are guided by Catholic Social Teaching which emphasizes the social nature of humanity and an ethics of the common good, along with a "preferential option for the poor" and the less fortunate. The Center for Social Impact will help integrate our Augustinian values, our Christian Service learning, and our educational vision. The Center will move Malvern and our Academy Model forward by providing the flexible learning spaces needed to integrate disciplines such as science, technology, engineering, arts and math.
  • Where will it be located?

    The Center will link Carney Hall with a fully renovated Sullivan Hall. A bridge will connect the student drop off to the Center, creating a new portal to campus through which most students will arrive each morning.
  • What will it look like - size, design, etc.?

    The Center will provide ample square footage, moveable walls, and easy flow between labs. It will also feature learning studios and common areas with modular/moveable furnishing and writable surfaces. The Center will be built with sustainable and energy-efficient practices in mind.
  • Who will benefit from the space?

    Primarily students and teachers who have traditionally been constrained in small rooms with rows of desks will benefit most from this new open and more collaborative space. The hope is that our entire community will experience the benefits of this building, whether it be at on campus meetings, student presentations or during other activities/events where collaboration is essential.
  • What is the project timeline? When will it be completed?

    Construction will begin in Fall 2018. We will hold our official groundbreaking ceremony on September 7, 2018. The entire building process is expected to be completed in time for the 2019-2020 academic year.
