Creativity: Visual and Performing Arts

Your support of Creativity at Commonwealth helps inspire and ignite artistic exploration in the classroom, on stage, and in the studio. The arts are integral to the Commonwealth experience. Some graduates go on to be accomplished performers and artists; others share that their formative time in the ceramics studio or harmonizing in the chorus equipped them with a creative lens that continues to serve their personal and professional lives.

  

Community Engagement: Experiential Learning

A gift toward Community Engagement allows Commonwealth students to explore every corner of their world: testing theories during Project Week; serving those in need in Boston and beyond; organizing clubs like Model UN, Feminism, and Robotics; even just getting to know each other better at Hancock.
