The Faculty of Excellence Campaign

The Faculty of Excellence Campaign is established in honor and appreciation of the outstanding, innovative educators who comprise the University Liggett School faculty, and the exceptional educational experiences they provide. Vital faculty professional development opportunities and rich experiential learning opportunities not only lay the groundwork for an exceptional University Liggett School education but also significantly improve our ability to attract and retain the greatest educators in the Midwest, today and well into the future.

The Triple Your Impact Challenge was a giant success – raising a one-day total of more than $150,000 in support of our amazing faculty!

Your support also helped us reach our overall goal of $500,000 for the Faculty of Excellence campaign...that makes today a double celebration!!! Triple thanks to all whose gifts on this unique day of fundraising will have an exponential impact on the school's ability to attract, retain and support our world-class educators.

Also, a huge thank you to the Clyde and Helen Wu Family Fund for matching all gifts up to $500,000 and to University Liggett School's Board President, David Nicholson and his wife Kristin for the additional match for yesterday's campaign.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your support!
