  • Enhance opportunities including study abroad, undergraduate research, and service learning

Inspire established and emerging faculty leaders

  • Endow five new professorships in areas such as: Rural studies, Entrepreneurial studies, Environmental studies, and Native American and Indigenous studies.

Revitalize our historic campus

  • Expand and improve our physical space to support the student experience, faculty research, and regional outreach
