Our Philosophy

The Connelly Center is designed to serve the cultural, social, recreational, religious and co-curricular needs of Villanova University students, faculty, staff, alumni and university friends. The Connelly Center is the center for the campus community, and as such is an integral part of the institution's educational environment; it provides services, facilities and programs that enhance the quality of college life.

Through the work of its staff and various committees, the Connelly Center can be a "laboratory" where students can learn and practice leadership, management, social responsibility and interpersonal skills.

As a center for the academic community, the Connelly Center provides a place for increased interaction and understanding among individuals from diverse backgrounds.
