Friends of Franklin is an association of individuals who share an interest in the programs and well being of the University.
The association aims to create opportunities for members of the local community to support and engage in the life of the university, and for the university to engage in the life of the community.
Franklin is delighted to offer distinctive benefits to the local community, such as access to university courses and public lectures/cultural events, faculty expertise, collaboration and partnerships, qualified student interns and volunteers for local organizations, and the use of university facilities for private events, among others.
Friends of Franklin are united by an interest in the university’s activities and in the role the university can play in the local artistic, cultural, socio-economic and political landscape.
Members act as ambassadors for the university, fostering understanding in the greater community of the nature and value of Franklin University Switzerland as a unique institution - a private, non-profit university based on an Anglo-American model that emphasizes attention to students, small classes, critical thinking, intercultural experience, social responsibility and intense global engagement.
