F&M's Board of Trustees designated the entire campus the Caroline Steinman Nunan Arboretum at Franklin & Marshall College in recognition of Caroline "Carrie" Steinman Nunan's unwavering leadership and commitment to environmental conservation.
Carrie, a prominent Lancaster philanthropist, served as president of the James Hale Steinman Foundation, was a life member of the Lancaster County Conservancy, and dedicated years of service to many influential community organizations. She also played a leading role in her family’s media business, serving as a director of Lancaster Newspapers, Inc. and Steinman Enterprises.
Her remarkable dedication to the liberal arts was evident through her leadership and participation in a wide range of F&M programs that shaped the College. Carrie was elected to F&M's Board of Trustees in 1983, where she served with distinction and grace for 14 years until she achieved trustee emerita status in 1997. At the time of her death in 2010, she remained a thoughtful and active member of several Board subcommittees including the Trustee Art Collections Committee and the College’s Board of Visitors.
The College is honored to have its grounds serve as a living memorial to Carrie and her many contributions to the Franklin & Marshall community.
