Western New England University has identified their highest priorities for private support. First, increased student aid and scholarship support will provide access to the experiential Western New England education for deserving students, regardless of their financial limitations. Second, academic excellence in programs, additional research opportunities, and updating the facilities in which students learn and study will create practical real-world environments. And third, the holistic student experience can be enhanced with internships, campus activities, study-abroad learning, and more.
Each of these priority areas helps us to recruit and retain high caliber students ready to excel at the University, attract prominent faculty members in their areas of expertise and maintain state-of-the-art technological resources and facilities for the entire campus community.
Access for all deserving students
Whether determined to be a civil engineer, pharmacist, lawyer, accountant or psychologist, Western New England students are certain that the future holds great promise and are willing to take on debt to experience our University and graduate with their degree. By decreasing debt, gifts toward financial aid directly affect the opportunities students can take advantage of to open career paths and widen their choices as new professionals.
Your gift will increase both the number and size of scholarships.
Programs and research
Faculty and staff are one of a university's most important resources. In order to ensure the highest quality of education for students, Western New England needs to recruit and retain an exceptional faculty. Program support, endowed chairs or endowed professorships would allow us to recruit quality faculty members while at the same time providing the University with increased flexibility in its use of existing funds.
Your gift will enhance and expand programs by providing the richest, most diverse academic opportunities.
The Golden Bear Experience
We are proud to have built experiential learning experiences into the curriculum so that all student partake in a high-impact, out of classroom learning project before they graduate. This allows our students to be inspired to impact the world, make history-altering discoveries, engage in new heights of civic responsibility, and live life to the fullest.
Leadership development, volunteerism, student government, athletics, diversity programing, student research, service-learning projects, and internships all provide a stimulating environment for both social and intellectual growth.
Your gift will transform students' lives through personalized, out of classroom experiences while preparing them for real world success.
