Redbirds Rising: 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 Milner Library within our key funding categories.
The library has identified four key priorities which are highlighted below. To further explore these objectives, please refer to our Campaign Case Statement.
