On Friday, September 17th, coinciding with West Chester University’s150th anniversary celebrations, President Fiorentino announced a $65 million comprehensive campaign, 150Forward: The Campaign for West Chester University.

This campaign, the largest in the university’s history, sets important and ambitious goals for the next generation of WCU students.

The goals are simple:

  • Investing in our Students.  Breaking down barriers to education and foster accessibility through scholarships.
  • Creating Opportunity.  Provide opportunities for academic, civic and professional growth, inside and outside of the classroom, across our campus, and in our communities.
  • Leading with Technology.  Build a connected campus that features the technological advancements to meet the needs of an ever-changing world.

More than $42 million dollars has been raised in support of these priorities. Working alongside President Fiorentino and our Foundation to make this campaign a reality are campaign co-chairs Eric K. Bossard ’85, Marc Duey, and Jacquelyne North ’81.

West Chester University has never had greater momentum than today. Capitalizing on our rich history, healthy enrollments, and new national initiatives, we are ready to fulfill our mission of student success for the next 150 years.
