Campaign Priorities

Colgate's momentum is fueled by the strengths of our traditions and the connections of our community and the aspiration to develop a new paradigm for liberal arts leadership in the 21st century.

In order to prepare students for the century in which they will lead, we must offer them the Colgate way of mastering critical thinking and responsible leading in the context of a robust educational community that both supports and challenges our students. We will focus on four key areas:

1. Liberal Arts & Academic Excellence
Enhance our distinct combination of liberal arts teaching and university research

2. Financial Aid & Access
Continue to make Colgate accessible

3. Residential Education & the Campus Community
Fully implement Colgate's nationally-recognized vision of residential education and campus life

4. General Endowment & Annual Fund
Grow Colgate's endowment and strengthen our resources
