The seven-year campaign raised more than $653.6 million in private gifts and pledges that will be used to support academic and research programs, student scholarships and awards, endowed professorships and chairs for faculty, building the new learning environment, varsity sports programs and outreach programs to serve the state and nation as well as other university projects.
