SUU Completes $100 Million Fundraising Campaign

Press Release

April 1, 2014

Southern Utah University has completed its $100 million "The Future is Rising" fund-raising campaign.

The campaign began in January 2007, in conjunction with the inauguration of President Michael T. Benson, who led the campaign until his departure in June of last year.

"The Future Is Rising campaign has laid a tremendous foundation for future growth and has placed SUU on a trajectory for success,” said SUU’s new president, Scott L Wyatt. “The outpouring of support from private individuals, foundations and corporations truly has provided that margin of excellence that will serve to enhance the university experience far beyond what can be achieved through state funding alone.”

“Our friends and benefactors have truly astounded us at their level of commitment and support for the University, our students and higher education,” said vice president for institutional advancement Stuart Jones, who oversaw the campaign.

Among the highlights of the campaign, more than $22 million raised in the campaign will support enriching student life, such as new student scholarships, many of which created endowments to ensure ongoing scholarship support in perpetuity. Among them, nearly $5 million to support the Leavitt Scholarship Housing and a $2 million gift from the Alsam Foundation to support pre-pharmacy scholarships and undergraduate research.

The campaign garnered more than $12 million to support academic excellence, including a $4 million endowment for the College of Science and Engineering, to support scholarships and research initiatives and to name the Walter Maxwell Gibson College of Science & Engineering.

More than $50 million was raised for new construction, increasing classroom, research and communal student space.
