Investing in Augustana ensures that we can continue to adapt to, and stay in sync with, advances in scholarship, science and technology.
At the same time, your support makes it possible for Augustana to remain true to its culture and our 156-year-old reputation as a world-class institution which supports scientific exploration and discovery, the exchange of ideas and the pursuit of faith, while adhering to the highest standards of teaching and research. Most importantly though, the philanthropic support of our alumni and friends enables Augustana to provide 100 percent of our students with financial aid and scholarships – life-changing, transformational gifts that help some of the world’s most talented, creative and innovative young people achieve their full potential as students in preparation for lives as global citizens.
Thanks to the help and support of alumni and friends, the 2014-15 academic year was another extraordinary period in Augustana’s history. We continued to make a difference in the lives of our students, we recorded breakthroughs in our scientific and social research, enriched the hearts and minds of thousands through the performing and visual arts, and forged strong connections in our community. We welcomed newcomers and said good-bye to dear friends. We completed plans for the largest building project in our 156-year history, took home athletic championships, climbed in influential national rankings and strengthened our connections abroad. Your philanthropic support helped make these achievements possible!
