The Venue: Luce Auditorium


The Luce Auditorium was built in 1973 and completed in 1975 at a cost of P4.4 million from funds provided mainly by the Henry Luce Foundation, Inc. of New York. Counterpart funding was raised by Silliman University through its alumni, faculty, staff, student body, business community and from friends in the Philippines and abroad. The balance was donated by the United Presbyterian Commissions. This project was helped by the United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia based in New York City.

The Luce Auditorium was formally inaugurated on the 6th day of October, 1974 with ceremonies dedicating the facility to the memory of Claire Isabel McGill Luce (1923-1971), wife of Henry Luce III, President of the Henry Luce Foundation, Inc.
