On Oct. 12, 2011, Wheelock began the public phase of The Campaign for Wheelock—the largest capital campaign in the College’s history—with a kickoff event at WGBH studios in Allston. The event celebrated Wheelock’s many outstanding accomplishments and brought students, faculty, and staff together with alumni and friends of the College to share information about programs and activities that are flourishing at Wheelock. It was an informative and fun way to envision new opportunities for the College to advance its mission in the near future and learn how the Campaign will lead to more growth and recognition for Wheelock.
Nearly one-third, or $25 million, of the $80 million Campaign goal is designated for faculty and student programs and unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund, essential support which provides for scholarships and the financial flexibility that allows the College to maintain its day-to-day quality of operations and to respond to new opportunities and challenges as they arise. The remaining amount of the Campaign goal – $55 million – is dedicated to five first-of-their-kind endowments for Wheelock: endowments for Student Scholarships, Professorships, Innovation, and Technology Enhancement and Innovation, and a fund for Campus Facilities Projects.
The Campaign for Wheelock will prepare more Wheelock graduates with the knowledge and skills they need to change the world. Join in on this historic endeavor and follow the Campaign’s progress at its Wheelock website page: WWW.WHEELOCK.EDU/CAMPAIGN
