College of Arts and Sciences

The College of Arts and Sciences at Fontbonne University houses a diverse array of
programs in art, science, humanities, social science, and more and forms the educational foundation of Fontbonne’s commitment to think critically, act ethically and serve others. Although the four departments in the college vary greatly, we have a shared commitment to the advancement and understanding of basic (foundational) knowledge, to exploring with an interdisciplinary perspective, and to providing hands-on, high-impact experiences for our students.

Our needs, while necessarily taking different forms in each discipline, are united by the common desire that students experience transformative learning by interacting with their peers and with faculty while pursuing their passion.

We seek your support for:

  • Restarting a competition Mock Trial team for students from all disciplines to learn about the law
  • Visiting artists to provide students with perspectives and critique from professional artists
  • Equipment for student performances in theatre and student research in biological sciences
  • Support to restart and reinvigorate student publications such as the Fontbanner
  • Student travel to conferences to present student-faculty cooperative research
  • Furniture and technology to create an active-learning STEM classroom

The faculty and staff in the College of Arts and Sciences are committed to an excellent liberal arts education for all Fontbonne students. Your support gives us the flexibility to unleash the creative expertise in our faculty.

Thank you,

College of Education and Allied Health Professions

Known nationally for its excellent programs, the College of Education and Allied Health Professions houses communication disorders and deaf education, education and special education, and family and consumer sciences.

Our graduates are highly sought after, with 95 percent of our graduates in all disciplines employed in their field. The Education/Special Department at Fontbonne is known for graduating the largest numbers of special education teacher candidates in the state of Missouri each year.

We serve our students and the community in a number of programs:

  • The Eardley Family Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic, treating a wide variety of communication disorders
  • The Aphasia Boot Camp, an intensive therapy approach for people who have experienced stroke-related brain damage
  • The Capellupo Family Theatre Camp, for children who use augmentative/alternative communication
  • Camp F.I.R.E. (Fontbonne Inspires Reading Excitement), a literacy camp for children with hearing loss
  • CampF.R.E.S.H., a summer camp for children entering 4th through 7th grades, focusing on culinary experiences, nutrition, health and wellness, physical exercise and creativity

All of these services are key to preparing students and as community resources. To help continue and grow these services, we need additional funding in these areas:

  • Maintaining the state-of-the-art clinic facilities
  • Scholarships for graduate students in Adult Neurogenics and Emphasis in Deafness
  • Scholarships to help students seeking teacher certifications to help pay for state-required assessment fees and costs associated with annual clearance checks for school/practicum sites
  • Classroom action research, which could potentially be used for informing the education field and improving outcomes for students
  • Technology such as tablets and speech-generating devices

Thank you,

Eckelkamp College of Global Business and Professional Studies

The Eckelkamp College of Global Business and Professional Studies offers more than a dozen degree options, including undergraduate, graduate, evening and online options. Programs include business, accounting, sports management, marketing, social work and fashion merchandising.

We trust in the real-world experience all of our faculty possess and that our students will gain through internships. To achieve the high-impact combination of growth, learning and success, we need community partnership. Some of our immediate needs include:

  • Scholarships – More funds to assist students in paying for their education will continue to broaden our scope and achieve our goals, with an emphasis on rewarding students for service.
  • Faculty Research – We need more funds to support our faculty’s professional growth in their disciplines. The ability of faculty to research and contribute to the professional dialogue and to learn from peers adds great value to our students’ academic experience.
  • Equipment – Updated software packages such as the fashion merchandising Product Lifecycle Management software, classroom equipment and merchandising props add to the learning environment.
  • Unrestricted Expenses – Travel, accreditation and other operations improve our image and reach
