Steele Center

Funds to build the Steele Center were raised as part of the FOUNDATIONS FOR EXCELLENCE (FFE) capital campaign, which also raised money to support the endowment. Originally known as the Performing Arts Center & Student Commons, it was renamed in June 2015 in honor of Fr. Philip G. Steele, SJ '66, who served as the school's president from 2006 to 2015.
