The Gund Gallery champions the best art of the 20th and 21st centuries via an active exhibition schedule, expanding permanent collection and valuable curricular collaborations. Faculty regularly draw on gallery resources to enrich their teaching — about 2,500 student visits across 150 course sessions each year. And the Gund Gallery Associate Program provides students with practical experience in gallery work, such as curation, research and community outreach.
Building on a renowned history, The Kenyon Review has grown from a distinguished literary magazine to a pre-eminent arts organization, celebrating the best in contemporary writing. It nurtures a diversity of voices at every stage of their careers, publishing works online and in print, and hosts programs such as the summer Young Writers Workshop for 16- to 18-year-olds and the Kenyon Review Associate Program, which offers undergraduates practical experience in the publishing business.
Philander Chase Conservancy
The Philander Chase Conservancy is the only private land trust affiliated with a college. It is uniquely positioned to connect conservation efforts in Knox County with education and research by Kenyon undergraduates. Lands held by the conservancy, such as the Brown Family Environmental Center and the Kokosing Nature Preserve, are important laboratories within Kenyon’s network of green initiatives. All told, the conservancy has worked with local farmers and other private landowners to protect about 5,300 acres around Gambier.
