Report of Giving 2008-2009: Read about Our Donors’ Generous Financial Support Online

Posted November 27, 2009

09reportofgiving150gifThe Western New England College Report of Giving 2008-2009 is now available exclusively online. The document provides interesting data and inspiring examples of how donors’ gifts have enabled the College to excel.

“The fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2009 will be remembered as one in which Western New England made major strides in building for its future,” according to President Anthony S. Caprio. “We adopted our new 10-year Strategic Plan for the period 2009-2018; we began building Southwood Residence Hall; we launched our first doctoral program: the Ph.D. in Behavior Analysis; and we also proceeded with plans for a new 125,000-square-foot academic building now under construction. This facility will house our programs in Pharmacy, the Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, and Physicis), and Psychology.”

Indeed, donors helped sustain the College’s growth “despite a global economic downturn that has affected us all,” he added.


Western New England University is a private, independent, coeducational institution founded in 1919. Located on an attractive 215-acre suburban campus in Springfield, Massachusetts, Western New England University serves 3,700 students, including 2,550 full-time undergraduate students.
