Thrive On: The Campaign for Utica University is a $30 million fundraising initiative to strengthen Utica’s ability to recruit and retain top students, make education accessible to all, and support academic and athletic achievement at the highest levels.
Utica University’s mission relies upon the continuous pursuit of excellence in the classroom and in the world. Philanthropic support enhances our faculty’s ability to develop new research and deliver innovative instruction across disciplines, enriching the academic experience and positioning Utica University as a trailblazer on a national stage.
A key component of Utica University’s mission is to foster a rich diversity of perspective, background, and experience. Only in creating an equitable, inclusive community can we thrive as individuals. Contributions from donors will help create spaces for students, faculty, and staff to come together—physically and metaphorically—in the pursuit of knowledge and a greater understanding of our collective place in society.
In classrooms, research laboratories, and on the playing field, Utica University students make discoveries with the power to impact the world. Support from donors will provide greater opportunities for students to explore their full potential through career-driven internships and immersive learning experiences, preparing graduates to take on complex global challenges and become tomorrow’s leaders.
Since its founding, Utica University has strived to make education accessible to learners from all backgrounds. Today, ensuring accessibility remains a pillar of Utica’s strategic plan. Philanthropic support will enhance the University’s ability to recruit top students of all racial and ethnic identities regardless of financial means, and foster athletic and academic achievement in the state-of-the-art facilities today’s students need.
