Building a Boundless Future
Every university reaches a point when it must decide its future: Will it maintain its status or set the wheels in motion to meet the needs demanded by the future. University of Detroit Mercy’s choice is clear—it will lead the way into a bold new future. It is deepening its commitment to the next generation of young men and women who wish to follow their dreams. Now, more than ever, its mission is crucial for the students of today and the world of tomorrow.
Our goals will be achieved in two ways. Increasing the endowment is essential for the long-term financial stability, while annual giving is necessary to continue ongoing support for students and the academic needs of the University. In addition to upgraded facilities and increased scholarships, the completion of the campaign will bring increased enrollment of high-achieving students and a stronger reputation for excellence because the University will recruit and retain more distinguished faculty.
The specific funding goals are:
- $40,000,000 for endowed and annual scholarships
- $25,000,000 for facility upgrades
- $25,000,000 for faculty and program support
- $10,000,000 for ongoing general support
Only by working together can the next level of excellence be achieved. Our vision, like University of Detroit Mercy’s future, is boundless.
