This Providence College Magazine cover story features interviews with the school’s leadership about their new humanities building. The article discusses the Ruane Center’s significance for the campus and for the school’s core focus on liberal education.
“Like Harkins Hall in the past, this will be our signature building for the next hundred years. I couldn’t be any more excited about a new academic facility than I am for this building,” said College President Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P. ’80. “It will symbolize the College’s commitment to the liberal arts, the humanities, and undergraduate education — including the revitalized Core Curriculum and the Development of Western Civilization, which remains the cornerstone of the PC academic experience.”
