The Campaign for USU

The university launched its first comprehensive fundraising campaign in 2007, focused on garnering support for scholarships, professorships, and facilities across the university. At its close in 2012, the effort raised more than half a billion dollars to help ensure Utah State remains accessible for all who come to learn. The Campaign for USU will make a lasting difference in the successes of our faculty and students, and in the future of the college and university. However, not all of the college's funding needs were met during this historic campaign. We continue to seek support for people, programming and facilities that service the public through learning, discovery, and engagement . We invite you to join us.  

CHaSS Campaign Goals


Student Support

Our students are at the center of all we do in the college. Because of our outstanding faculty and renowned programs, we want students to make a conscious, deliberate choice to attend CHaSS. We must endow merit and need-based scholarships for our best and brightest students so they can attend and reach their full potential. For experience outside the classroom our faculty and students study art in Germany; design in Switzerland, England and Italy; theatre in France and England; and cultural anthropology in Peru. Closer to home, consider the value of internships for our students in Congressional offices in Washington, D.C., or service-learning opportunities in local communities. An endowment will enhance these life-transforming experiences for our students.  

Areas to give: Undergraduate Scholarships Graduate Fellowships Experiential Learning

Faculty Support

Endowed professorships allow us to recruit some of the most distinguished scholars in the country. An endowment for visiting artists and scholars provides opportunities for our students to interact with renowned figures in the humanities and social sciences. Research and creative activity endowments provide seed funding for faculty to develop innovative projects and engage students in unique learning opportunities.
