Funds for Student Programs
Classes, discussions, projects, and assessments are not the sum of education at Severn. Through our robust series of programs, our students learn to examine and appreciate the varied perspectives and experiences possible in our world. Your gift to this category of funds also enables us to invite talented performers, speakers, educators, and activists to bring the outside world to Severn.
