Announcing Kevan Bowler as Campus Interfaith Chaplain
In a new role for Berkshire, Kevan Bowler will serve as the School’s Campus Interfaith Chaplain. As the interfaith chaplain, he will support students’ spiritual and emotional well-being and provide a space for students of all faiths, backgrounds, and beliefs to explore their spirituality. With a B.A. from Connecticut College and a Master’s degree from Hartford Seminary, Mr. Bowler has been on the faculty since 1999 and holds the Leon and Mabel Weil Endowed Chair in History.
I am dedicated to guiding students on their personal journeys of self-discovery, growth, and reflection. I firmly believe that spiritual and emotional well-being are integral components of a student's overall success, and my goal is to ensure that each student feels heard, valued, and empowered to navigate their Berkshire experience with a sense of purpose and resilience.”–Kevan Bowler

The Warren Family Gallery
Personal Treasures: Cherished Works of Art on Loan From the Faculty & Staff
September 1 – October 28, 2023
For The Warren Family Gallery’s latest exhibit, the faculty and staff have been invited to submit a “personal treasure”—a piece of art, an object, perhaps a memento, that has important and personal meaning to them. Each of the items is accompanied by a brief story or anecdote that describes why the piece is special. Among the exhibited pieces are family heirlooms passed down through generations, paintings and drawings made by family members, works of art and furniture created by faculty, and other assorted treasures.
