The Campaign for the University of North Dakota.
Together, we embark on a $500 million comprehensive fundraising campaign to build a University of North Dakota for the future: a future where people are empowered to make a difference and where the torch of knowledge is passed on to those who will lead the way.
The comprehensive campaign, guided by collaborative input from UND leadership and stakeholders, and the UND LEADS strategic plan, is focused on fundraising for four important areas. Forever UND: The Campaign for the University of North Dakota supports capital projects, student scholarships, faculty & research, and programs & priority needs.
We Build the Future.
Goal: $175 million
Drive down University Avenue, and you’ll see a campus transforming around you. As the Nistler College of Business & Public Administration continues to celebrate the completion of its new building, more new projects lie on the horizon. When you have great faculty and great students, you must have great facilities in which to teach and learn.
We Inspire Leaders.
Goal: $125 million
We believe that an outstanding, affordable education should be attainable for every student. Today’s students are battling tuition challenges and a rapidly rising cost of living – both attributing factors in the steady decline of nationwide undergraduate enrollment. At UND, however, we have managed to buck that trend, growing enrollment by 2% in fall 2023. The key? Increasing scholarship offerings to recruit and retain students.
We Empower Action.
Goal: $120 million
One chair or professor can touch the lives of many through the courses they teach, the students they mentor or simply through their academic work. Endowed faculty give students the opportunity to work alongside the most talented scholars and researchers to solve global grand challenges. By increasing endowed faculty positions, we are able to recruit and retain faculty, which ultimately enhances student learning.
We Lead for the Future.
Goal: $80 million
Individual colleges, departments and centers make our University unique, and their needs may shift from year to year. By supporting programs and priority needs, we ensure our students have access to ideal experiential learning opportunities to equip them for the future.
