$5M Donation Establishes Bridgewater’s School of Arts and Humanities

A 1962 alumna of Bridgewater College has made a $5 million donation that will establish the Bonnie Forrer and John Harvey Rhodes School of Arts and Humanities, named for the donor and her late husband.

The private college’s first named and endowed school will combine its existing communications, fine arts and literature divisions with its division of humanities and social sciences, Bridgewater announced Wednesday in a news release. A resident of Pennsylvania, Bonnie Rhodes is on the college’s board of trustees and previously made a donation to support the John Kenny Forrer Learning Commons, named for her father. The recent gift will provide new equipment, enable more student research and travel, establish a pre-tenure sabbatical program for faculty and establish an endowed chair for the school.
