We are on a trajectory to become, as our vision articulates, "a premier research university of international stature, delivering education, new knowledge, and innovation for the needs of our technological world."
Our commitment to exceptional undergraduate education must remain stalwart, but we know that to compete in tomorrow's world our students will need even more research and experiential learning opportunities and the chance to continue their work in outstanding graduate programs.
To be one of the premier research institutions in the world, we need an endowment large enough to attract world-class faculty members who are excellent teachers and researchers and who are anxious to work with bright, adventurous, ambitious students who are ready for a challenge. We need scholarships and fellowships to help students afford Tech, and we need first-rate facilities and cutting-edge technologies. We need innovative programs where intellectual inquiry will lead us to knowledge we haven't yet imagined.
And we need resources to match our ambition.
Generations of Discovery: The Campaign for Michigan Tech is a multi-year fundraising initiative with a projected goal of $200 million but with ambition for much more to match the University's potential. We are counting on the generosity of alumni, friends, foundations, and corporate partners to propel the transformation of Michigan Tech.
