The Italian Studies program at Chapman University is greatly pleased to announce that Marybelle and Sebastian P. Musco have pledged their commitment to establishing the Marybelle and Sebastian P. Musco Travel Class Endowment. Once established, the endowment will support students’ participation in the Italian Studies program travel classes, with a preference to students pursuing a degree in Italian Studies.
The students’ ability to fully commit to their passions for learning Italian language and culture through an Italian Studies Travel Course is an essential step in their educational experience at Chapman University. Growing from its inaugural travel class in Taormina, the Italian Studies is developing a robust set of travel and experiential learning opportunities across the peninsula in the future.
Paul and Marybelle Musco’s unwavering commitment to the University continues to be an inspiration to Chapman and the community. Their leadership through their funding of the Musco Center for the Arts, their tireless fundraising efforts as co-chairs of Chapman Celebrates, and their investment in Italian language and heritage through their endowment for the Sebastian Paul and Marybelle Musco Chair in Italian Studies are just a few of the many ways the Musco’s impact our students, campus, and community.
