Case for Support
THE FUTURE IS RISING CAMPAIGN
The Future Is Rising Campaign will propel Southern Utah University to new heights in the coming decades and create an opportunity for us all to reaffirm and magnify our commitment to SUU. By supporting this $100 million campaign, you can invest in the future and leave a lasting legacy.
People give to Southern Utah University for many reasons: to express gratitude to former mentors, to give back to the institution that gave to them, to be part of something greater than themselves. Whatever the reason for giving, at the heart of each gift is the will to make a difference, to provide the SUU community with the means to change lives and to improve our world.
Especially vital to this endeavor is the need for caring individuals and organizations to partner with the University in ensuring that our students and potential students accomplish their scholastic goals.
While SUU has succeeded mightily in our mission over more than a century and our essence has remained bright, funding for public higher education—accompanied by the economic realities faced by students—has become dimmer. This has serious implications for our students and potential students, many of whom lack the resources to seek a higher education and many of whom would be the first in their family to attend a college or university. Federal and state programs providing financial aid have not kept pace with the realistic needs of students and their parents. In order to help these students and to attract and retain a superior and diverse student body, scholarship assistance is crucial. Critical, as well, are additional funds to ensure continued quality of the education offered as well as for facilities and services to help accomplish the University’s mission.
