The Campaign for Illinois State will enable the University to achieve three critical outcomes: educating tomorrow's leaders, graduating globally aware and socially engaged citizens, and sparking continuous creativity and innovation. To advance these objectives, we offer multiple ways to support the College of Fine Arts within our key funding categories.
The college has identified five key priorities which are highlighted below. To further explore these objectives, please refer to our Campaign Case Statement.
Expanding student opportunity
Privately funded scholarships enable the College to attract students who are academically gifted and possess superior talent.
Attracting and developing top faculty
Named, endowed professorships and visiting professorships provide the University with the resources to attract top faculty who create and lead world-class academic programs.
Replenishing teaching tools
Equipment and upkeep is essential, as each item is fundamental to effectively teaching courses, producing performances and exhibitions, and providing community education.
Empowering through world-class programs
Our graduates gain a competitive advantage through research, special programs, and fine arts opportunites that extend beyond the classroom. Support for these initiatives helps the College amplify its reputation for excellence and leadership.
Generous, ongoing support for the College's annual fund allows us to respond quickly to opportunites that benefit our students and faculty and enhance our reputation for excellence.
