Find your center at SNC

The academic centers at St. Norbert College serve as interdisciplinary hubs for research and learning. Through them, our students and faculty work together to explore new solutions to both local and global issues, from human dignity and peace-building to gender justice and ethical leadership.

Community and education are at the heart of what we do here at SNC, and that extends to our academic centers. Our centers work to fill the needs of our community, creating economic impact studies, providing diversity and inclusion training, promoting service learning, and developing strong leaders.

The Norman Miller Center for Peace, Justice & Public Understanding (NMC) explores the complex history of inequality in the world, and nurtures ways to build sustainable peace through a commitment to the common good. The center provides resources and opportunities for the campus and local communities around De Pere, Wis., to discuss, understand and partner for change in some of the most complex issues of our time.

The Sturzl Center for Community Service & Learning is built on the knowledge that it is in giving that we receive. Accordingly, the center devotes its efforts to facilitating service opportunities for students, faculty, staff and alumni. Through strong partnerships with the Brown County community, our students have opportunities to participate in a wide range of both academic and co-curricular service-learning.

The Center for Exceptional Leadership (CEL) works with area professionals to cultivate the qualities and behaviors that create strong, visionary and ethical leaders through a process of assessment, mentoring and project-based learning. This academic center also facilitates a number of workshops and other programming throughout the year to help build strong leaders in our community.

Many SNC students connect with our Center for Global Engagement (CGE), where they can discover cross-cultural experiences, such as study-abroad and international exchange programs, our ESL Institute, and globally focused programming, such as our Great Decisions Lecture Series.

At the Cassandra Voss Center (CVC), you’ll find innovative, holistic programs on issues of identity that have earned recognition at regional and national levels. This academic center acts as a focal point for education and awareness among faculty, staff and students, promoting equality through music, art, workshops and social events.

The Center for Norbertine Studies (CNS) is a collaborative partnership between the college and our founding Norbertine order, and serves as the international locus for the order. CNS acts as a repository for Norbertine history and scholarship, providing opportunities for undergraduate and graduate scholarship, collaboration among Norbertine houses throughout the world, cross-cultural interaction and international student and faculty exchange.

Our Center for Business & Economic Analysis (CBEA) engages student fellows, empowering them to work with local, national and even international business and nonprofit leaders to plot future business strategies and provide solutions to complex problems for businesses and nonprofits. The CBEA gives students invaluable experience through competitive fellowships.

We also have a Research Center located within the Mulva Library. Our trained librarians are expert researchers who can help students with assignments or projects.

Our campus is home to the St. Norbert College Strategic Research Institute (SRI), one of the Midwest’s most respected sources for gathering, reporting and interpreting data for businesses and nonprofits. The SRI frequently employs St. Norbert College students in its research projects.
