Your Invitation to Join the Presidents Council
While Southwestern University holds a position as one of the nations best liberal arts institutions, we have embraced a vision that will provide an even more transformative experience for students. Your support propels the University toward this vision.
Since its founding in 1840, Southwestern University has benefited from bold visions, thoughtful planning, and careful stewardship of its resources. The University has received an abundance of ideas, energy and financial gifts from alumni and friends. The generosity and support of this community have made Southwestern University Texas leading national liberal arts college.
The transformation of a regional liberal arts college to a leading national liberal arts college requires a tremendous investment. It is loyal benefactors who will continue to make great things possible at Southwestern. The Presidents Council recognizes the Universitys most generous annual donors of $1,000 or more. The impact of their contributions can be seen in every facet of the University.
Today, Presidents Council members are leading the way in the support of the Strategic Plan for 2010. The plans initiatives ignite in our students a passion for lifelong learning, a compassion for others and a desire to accept civic responsibility. Gifts from Southwesterns alumni and friends will support the Paideia® Program, new faculty positions, financial assistance for students, diversity, technology, library resources and facilities.
However removed from the campus in time or distance, alumni and friends of Southwestern enjoy a connection born of their experiences with the University. Membership in the Presidents Council is a tangible expression of that connection and a vital source of the Universitys strength.
Please join us, as a member of the Presidents Council, in providing for the future of Southwestern University, its students and faculty. You have the opportunity to offer coming generations the distinctive educational experiences, vibrant memories and lifelong connections that characterize Southwestern.
