"A Fire That Kindles Other Fires"
The Campaign To Advance Mission, Access, & Excellence
It is only by joining together and increasing funding for the Humanities, for Opening Doors for Students to Achieve Their Potential, for Faculty Support, for Research and Innovation, for Student Life, and for Scholarships and Financial Aid that we can set The University of Scranton on an unprecedented trajectory for academic success. By building on our strategic plan, making our mark in education, and driving a transformation of our core strengths, we will inspire our community to make strategic investments through three essential pillars:
Advancing the Mission
Our University's legacy of groundbreaking research and academic excellence has been driven by the collective efforts of dedicated faculty, staff and students. To further our research capabilities and fuel innovation, we will invest in our campus, in state-of-the-art technology, and in collaborative research initiatives. Support for this endeavor will empower our researchers to make important discoveries that will shape the future.
Increasing Access & Affordability
We believe that every talented and deserving student should have access to a world-class education, regardless of their financial circumstances. By focusing on access and affordability, we will establish an unprecedented number of scholarships and financial aid opportunities that will help to realize the higher education dreams of many bright minds while ensuring that deserving students can pursue their passions unburdened by financial constraints.
Being “men and women for others” lies at the core of our University's identity. By fostering strong ties with local and national service opportunities, we aim to create lasting impact and promote positive change. Contributions will both strengthen our outreach programs and enhance opportunities for service learning while empowering our students to be compassionate and socially responsible leaders.
