Evansville Couple Hopes To Change Lives With Gift

Posted: Updated:
CRAWFORDSVILLE -

More Wabash College students will experience immersion learning thanks to a gift from John and Diane Schroeder. The one-semester courses offer the opportunity to study coursework outside the classroom, with past classes taking immersion trips to Europe, Africa and across the U.S. The Schroeders’ gift will be used to offset nearly $700,000 of annual immersive learning expenses.

Wabash College President Gregory Hess calls John and Diane, “selfless leaders who want to make the world a classroom for our students.” The gift means all future Wabash students will be guaranteed fully-funded immersion opportunities during college. 

The Schroeder gift is included in the largest fund-raising campaign in the school's 186 years. The “Giant Steps” campaign is seeking to raise $225 million for four areas: capital projects and the Annual fund; faculty support; student scholarships; and providing immersive learning opportunities for all students.  The campaign has raised $150 million since being launched earlier this month.
