Campaign Success

In 2017, Nebraska Wesleyan publicly launched Bold Designs: The Campaign for Nebraska Wesleyan University. Thanks to over 14,000 alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff members and students, we surpassed our $62 million goal and raised $67.5 million.

Bold Designs focused on four main priorities: premier learning spaces (including the construction of Acklie Hall of Science), scholarships, faculty support and student experiences. Because of you, this campaign has strengthened each of these areas and elevated the university as a whole. Because of you, it has greatly impacted our students, faculty members and the communities we serve. Together, we made those bold designs for the future of NWU come to life. 

Thank you.
