I am thrilled to announce the launch of our ambitious "Students at the Center for a Better World" comprehensive campaign, a pivotal initiative that embodies our institution's steadfast commitment to nurturing students, grounded in Lasallian principles, who will go on to positively shape the world. Our Mission remains at the forefront, echoing the core values that guide us in meeting students where they are and propelling them forward to live out their true calling.

This campaign is a testament to our unwavering dedication to providing an exceptional educational experience that empowers our students to become change-makers and leaders of tomorrow. The funds raised through this campaign will be allocated strategically across three key pillars: spaces and places, endowment, and scholarship and programs that align with the university’s strategic plan. Capital projects will enhance our campus core, ensuring a conducive environment for learning and growth. The endowment will fortify our financial sustainability, enabling us to maintain the highest standards of education and support. The general use fund will be instrumental in fostering innovation, addressing immediate needs, and creating opportunities for our students to engage in transformative experiences.

Your support will play a pivotal role in realizing our vision of a university that not only educates but inspires, with students truly at the center of a better world.

Together, we can propel our students toward a future where they can live out their calling and make a lasting impact on society.
