History

In 2016, the Gilpatrick Center for Fellowships and Student Research was rededicated as the Lisska Center for Scholarly Engagement in honor of Philosophy professor, Dr. Anthony Lisska. Reinvigorating the Gilpatrick Center as the Center for Scholarly Engagement is a strategic priority for the college. Our aim is to create a stronger, single point of contact for mentorship, programming, funding, advocacy, and leadership in relation to intellectual and scholarly life on campus.
