Catalyzing Student Success


A successful student experience involves more than what happens in our classrooms, libraries, and labs.

Bates is distinctive for its attention to the overall experience of its students — and for giving them a strong bridge to life after college.

The Bates Campaign will catalyze student success by strengthening key areas of student life: leadership and student programming, inclusivity, athletics, and Purposeful Work.

“I view my gift as an investment in helping Bates support students from underrepresented backgrounds and a continuation of work that I have been devoted to for the last 30 years.” — Chris Gorayeb ’80, P’20
