Providence College was founded by the Dominican Friars at the invitation of Bishop Harkins to provide a Catholic education in the arts and sciences. The 63,000-square-foot Ruane Center for the Humanities, which opened in 2013, is Providence College’s signature academic building. A number of prominent local and national politicians and judges are Providence College alumni; including former United States Senator from Connecticut Chris Dodd and his father, Thomas J. Dodd, also a long-serving U.S. Senator from Connecticut.
