Make a gift to support a Center of Distinction

At Monmouth University, there are unique organizations, known as Centers of Distinction, that work to promote awareness of specific issues and meet the needs of local and global communities. Our Centers, run by top experts and professors, provide important services in areas such as the environment, global affairs, and public policy. Because they are located right on campus, these organizations can offer students valuable hands-on experience outside the classroom and the chance to work directly with influential leaders. Whether their goal is to educate others, solve a problem, or bring important events to campus, the work being done by these Centers is what truly makes them distinct.
