Make a gift to support a Center of Distinction

At Monmouth University, Centers of Distinction work to promote awareness of specific issues and meet the needs of local and global communities. Because they are located right on campus, they offer students valuable hands-on experience outside the classroom and the chance to work directly with influential leaders. It is all part of the personalized education that separates Monmouth from other institutions and prepares students for the next chapter in their professional lives.

Center for the ArtsThe Center for the Arts hosts a variety of concerts, shows, lectures, and exhibits for the Monmouth community and public audiences. From musicians to ghost hunters, films to operas, these events provide education and enjoyment for those in attendance.

Institute for Global UnderstandingThe Institute for Global Understanding promotes understanding of global affairs and brings awareness of worldwide issues and challenges. To meet the goals of IGU, students, faculty, and the community actively engage in a series of programs, partnerships, fundraising initiatives, field experiences, and service learning opportunities.

Kislak Real Estate InstituteThe Kislak Real Estate Institute is a leading research center on real estate and economic development. The Institute also offers programs of study that provide students and professionals with the skills needed for a productive career in commercial real estate.

Polling InstituteThe Monmouth University Polling Institute was established to be a leading center for the study of opinion on critical national and state issues. The Polling Institute's mission is to foster greater public accountability by ensuring that the public's voice is heard in the policy discourse.

Urban Coast InstituteThe Urban Coast Institute serves Monmouth University and the public as a forum for research, education, and collaboration in the development and implementation of science-based policies and programs that support stewardship of healthy, productive, and resilient coastal ecosystems and communities.
