Macricostas Experience

Celebrating all things Macricostas

The Macricostas Experience is a series of events and hands-on experiences that invite the university and Danbury communities to study global cultures and values. Organized by the Macricostas School of Arts and Sciences and funded by a generous gift from the Macricostas Family Foundation, Macricostas Experiences include a lecture and speaker series held on campus that are both free and open to the public; student scholarships; and student study-abroad funding. In recognition of the generous gift by the Macricostas Family Foundation, the University named the School of Arts and Sciences in honor of Constantine Macricostas and his family.
The Macricostas School of Arts and Sciences is the foundation of the University's mission, comprised of the largest number of majors, faculty, and courses offered. In addition, virtually every University student is enrolled in courses in the Macricostas School of Arts and Sciences in order to fulfill General Education requirements.
Naming this school for the Macricostas family celebrates the Macricostas family's respect and love of education and the transformational role it can play in the lives of every individual. It recognizes the role education plays in a democratic society, where the voice of every individual is important, and where reason and intelligence each play a vital role.
