The goal of the All-University Campaign is participation. The All-University Campaign will allow all members of the campus community to participate by supporting the area of the university that is most dear to their heart.  They can direct their gifts to a specific area or fund. Every faculty/staff member will be sent a packet of information via campus mail asking them to support the All-University Campaign.
