Vision Statement

The University will strive to double its endowment in 10 years to strengthen the academic excellence and financial stability of the University.


Strategic Goals

  • Solicit financial gifts in support of the Strategic Vision and Priorities, especially in support of goals identified by the other Strategic Priority Implementation Teams that can result in endowment gifts that relieve operating budget pressures, that will benefit our students, faculty and UIW community.
  • Determine funding priorities to establish a comprehensive campaign (i.e., endowment, capital priorities and annual operating support).
