The Campaign for Siena College


This unique program inspires rigorous historical scholarship and drives community engagement.

As an academic program and outreach initiative, the McCormick Center raises awareness of upstate New York’s significant contribution to the founding of the American Republic by moving the story of 18th century America out of the classroom and into the living laboratory of upstate New York. It builds collaborations between academic and public historians, museum professionals, performing artists and the wider upstate New York communities to support and expand humanities programming.
