A Vision for the Future
The 175th Anniversary Fund respects our heritage and fuels our momentum as we become Mary Baldwin University and kick off the yearlong celebration of our quartoseptcentennial in 2016–17. This $7 million special fundraising initiative spans two fiscal years (2015–16 and 2016–17) and supports a wide range of strategic initiatives.
Crucial to achieving our vision for Mary Baldwin as we look toward our bicentennial, it will be the capstone of the Ever Ahead Campaign, fulfilling an $80 million goal as the largest and most successful fundraising effort in our history.
The Fund in Action
The 175th Anniversary Fund will sustain and enhance our five academic programs, providing immediate benefit to students and faculty. Before the conclusion of our 175th anniversary celebration at Commencement in May 2017, we will complete the following initiatives:
- Enhance the reputation of Mary Baldwin College for Women as the heart of the institution.
- Reposition the Baldwin Online and Adult Programs for ongoing success.
- Continue to develop the Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences.
- Support graduate programs in Shakespeare and Performance and the College of Education.
