Campaign Priorities

Western seeks to expand significantly private support in three crucial areas:

1) Scholarship endowments to ensure access to a Western education and ease the financial burden for academically talented young men and women. Scholarship endowments may be created to support any academic course of study or athletic program.

2) Program endowments that will enable faculty to broaden educational experiences for students in all disciplines.

3) Endowed professorships that will make it possible for Western to attract and retain the very best teachers, scholars, and creative minds in many different fields of study. So important to North Carolina is this initiative that state government matches private contributions for this purpose—dollar-for-dollar at four levels from $250,000 to $1 million.
