Your Gift To The 2020 Rise and Shine Campaign Goes Far At West Liberty University And Changes Students’ Lives.
WITH an increasing number of student opportunities in undergraduate majors, graduate degrees, and athletics — plus a recent growth in enrollment, we want to continue our success! A strong enrollment helps in fulfilling our Mission to provide an OPPORTUNITY for a high quality education and also improves the University’s FINANCIAL HEALTH by generating tuition dollars, which make up a majority of the operating budget.
- FUNDING SCHOLARSHIPS: The first $100,000 goes toward the WLU Foundation Scholarship Program, providing tuition dollars.
- NEED REQUEST PROGRAM: Additional funding goes toward the WLU Foundation Need Request Program which funded 27 projects worth nearly $200,000 during fiscal year ‘19. Recent initiatives include: a new panorex machine for the Dental Hygiene program, baseball field tarp, video editing lab, student travel, faculty development, and matching research grant funds for the College of Sciences.
