A Vision for Our Future Campaign
The support the College received during the 2013-2014 fiscal year was record-breaking and truly amazing. In addition to the highest percentage ever of alumni giving back, the College received the largest amount of donations in its 161-year history. Because of this, the College surpassed the original $10.4 million goal for “A Vision for Our Future” by an amazing $3.4 million. These momentous achievements not only reaffirm the mission of the College; they motivate all of the students, faculty and staff to work even harder to uphold and improve upon Culver-Stockton’s long tradition of excellence.
The ever-increasing support from alumni has been essential to the College’s recent successes. Over the past year, one out of every five alumni made the decision to give back to Culver-Stockton. The impact made by this support directly impacts students and is evident throughout the entire campus. Imagine what would happen if just two out of every five alumni chose to support C-SC?
As it stands, the increased support to Culver-Stockton provides students access to first-rate resources and facilities. Among recent projects, the synthetic playing surface, NX LEVEL Field, has been installed in Ellison Poulton Stadium, the W.A. Herington Center is nearly complete and construction is in full swing on the Mabee Recreation and Wellness Center. The College also tripled its Internet bandwidth and completed energy system upgrades to every building on campus.
The students have also benefitted from expanded offerings in the curriculum, especially the Travel Study component. When our students have the opportunity to participate in international and domestic travel courses, they gain cultural and global competencies that make them valuable members of society. Because of committed and generous support, 34 percent of Culver-Stockton’s graduating seniors participate in international Travel Study courses.
And for all of that, we cannot thank you enough.
With heartfelt appreciation,
