What We've Done

  • Achieved the highest contributed revenue year since the last capital campaign in 2012 and the highest non-campaign fundraising year since 2004.
  • Won three Horizon League titles in 2023, our first titles since 2018.
  • Increased ticket sales (on track to be the highest since 2018).
  • Received the highest total number of athletic gifts.

Where We're Going

  • Continue to steadily growth ticket sales and community engagement at the Weidner over the next five years.
  • Close the funding gap as the lowest funded university in the Horizon League and one of the lowest in the country for D1 athletics through earned income and fundraising.
