Increasing our endowment is the highest priority of Ever Higher.
New endowed scholarships ensure that bright, motivated students from a variety of backgrounds have the opportunity to earn a first-class education — preparing them for lives of accomplishment and service.
Faculty engagement in research and special projects enriches teaching by keeping faculty current in their fields, broadening their areas of expertise, and providing new information for revising existing courses and developing new offerings.
A variety of programs, such as study abroad, internships, educational exchanges, and distinguished speakers, enhance students' educational experience and foster personal growth.
Restricted annual or multiyear gifts also provide vital ongoing support for academic program enhancements.
The Drinko Center mission is to enrich the undergraduate experience by engaging students in collaborative research with faculty, by incorporating academically meaningful service-learning into the curriculum, by participating in collaborations that address community and regional needs, by initiating and supporting civic engagement activities, and by continuing to build and share the College's expertise in these areas. Over time, this will firmly establish Westminster as a regional and national leader in undergraduate experiential education.
