How Do We Get There?
The 3 - year, $3million endowment campaign will be in two stages with distinct, but overlapping focuses:
Stage I - $1.5 million to supplement existing University support to build a new class room/conference center, upgrade adult housing, student dormitories and recreational facilities, and to purchase laboratory/field instrumentation. Target ending date - June 2010
Stage II - $1.5 million for scholarships and financial aid for students, course development, and research on best teaching practices in the field. Target ending date – January 2012. A $3million endowment would exist in perpetuity and would provide in excess of $150,000 of spendable income annually. This would be supplemented with additional revenue generated by new courses for adults.
