About Albion College

about_home_ferguson_432


An independent, coeducational, residential college in south-central Michigan, Albion is committed to the liberal arts tradition. Founded in 1835 and historically related to the United Methodist Church, the College is dedicated to preserving the values of the past, to serving the needs of the present, and to anticipating the goals of the future.

 

Ludington Center

The Ludington Center, located in the heart of downtown Albion, is named in honor of Jack and Dorothy Ludington, both of whom were 1951 graduates of Albion College.

The Center aims to serve as both a College and Community space, while also acting as the home to the Albion College Institutes; The Carl A. Gerstacker Institute for Business and Management, the Gerald R. Ford Institute for Leadership in Public Policy and Service and the Career and Internship Center.

Jack Ludington was a committed supporter of community outreach in Albion, and also believed in the notion that a liberal arts education has a connection to Main Street, or in this case Superior Street. This building is dedicated to his vision of collaborative problem-solving.

A special thank you to our generous donors who have helped make the Ludington Center possible. Albion College recognizes the time and talent of Samuel J. Shaheen, '88, for his commitment in designing and developing the Center.
