ENDOWING THE HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES

Act of Determination 9 -- Creating a Plan for a Comprehensive Capital Campaign

For Arts & Sciences to build a financial model to achieve its goals on behalf of Pro Futuris, a considerable influx of new resources contingent upon the implementation of a comprehensive capital campaign will be needed. Current development staffing within Arts & Sciences is not sufficient to raise many tens of millions of dollars during a relatively brief 10-year period.

Action Steps:

  • By Summer 2014 the Dean will meet with the Provost and Senior Vice President for Development and Strategic Initiatives to reach an agreement that University Development will assist with the major fundraising initiatives recommended in this proposal.

  • By Summer 2014 the Dean will meet with the Provost and Senior Vice President for Development and Strategic Initiatives to reach an agreement based on best practices nationally to allow the development staff to grow to assist with the critical fundraising initiatives in Arts & Sciences.
