The President's Council is the university's premier giving association, made up of alumni, parents friends, faculty, and staff. President's Council annual gifts support the university's ability to provide scholarships and financial aid, helping us meet our highest funding priority - to attract the best and brightest students and to ease the burden of excessive loans for our students and graduates through financial support. President Council gifts also fund key initiatives including facilities improvement and faculty development grants. An annual black-tie event is held where the university takes the opportunity to thank all members of the President's Council for their generosity. With the help of some our most accomplished students, guests see first-hand the tremendous impact their gifts have on the university and on the lives of our students.
