Redbirds Rising: The Campus Community Campaign
Illinois State is a university on the rise thanks to the dedication and talents of our faculty, staff, and retirees. Employees commit themselves daily to embody the University's mission to "Gladly learn and teach." The Campus Community Campaign will engage our campus family in the Redbirds Rising Campaign with a goal of reaching 1,857 faculty, staff, retiree donor participants in the final two years of the Redbirds Rising campaign. This goal stretches our campus community participation and honors our founding year. We ask you to find your passion, make your gift, and see your impact.
Departments that make their annual participation target will celebrate with a unit-wide dessert party!
All participants in the Redbirds Rising: Campus Community Campaign will be invited to a special "Night with the President" following the conclusion of the campaign to recognize your generosity and participation.
All participants receive an exclusive Redbirds Rising pin to show your colleagues and students that you support Redbirds Rising.
