150 Forward campaign continues momentum

Jerry-Farley

This is an exciting, unprecedented time for Washburn University. In October 2013, the University launched a $100 million integrated fundraising campaign, and we are pleased to report that, as of February 2017, we’ve raised more than $97.3 million toward the goal.

This campaign is making dramatic changes on campus – physical changes, such as the Welcome Center and the School of Law building – that help provide greater student experiences and more opportunities for our faculty and students through increased program funding and scholarships.

I envision ample development at Washburn during the coming years: increased retention and graduation rates, ever-growing scholarships, substantial rewards for remarkable professors and continued expansions and renovations to keep the campus pristine. But the core of this university – the teaching-first identity so many have helped create – will stay in place.

When I first came to campus, it seemed to me Washburn was poised to take a big step forward. We had this attitude on campus then – and we still do – that together as a team we can achieve anything. That kind of attitude – that kind of spirit, electricity, energy – is present on Washburn’s campus every day.

We are excited about the direction of this campaign, and we hope you’ll join us in celebrating Washburn by making your gift.
