Generations of Discovery—The Campaign for Michigan Tech
“This is a wonderful time to be part of Michigan Tech as we honor our past generations and secure an exceptional future for those who will follow in their footsteps.”
–Glenn Mroz, President, Michigan Technological University
“I urge all of you to join me in giving Michigan Tech the resources, through the Generations of Discovery Campaign, to become the institution it needs to be to excel in tomorrow's complex world. We can all own its success.”
–David House, Campaign Chair, Generations of Discovery
During the last forty years, declining state support has created a major challenge for Michigan Tech. In 1963, state appropriations provided 75 percent of the University’s budget. This number has dropped each year and today Michigan Tech receives less than one-third of its funding from state appropriations.
Over the years, many generous individuals and companies have provided significant resources to make possible the advances we enjoy today. In order to continue to do great things, we need increased support. Private gifts, regardless of the size or designation, are vital to keep us on the cutting edge. Particularly important for us now are endowments, which provide stability and permanence, and allow us to plan for the future.
