Help us make dreams take flight!

As we approach the end of the year, we're taking a moment to think about all the dreams that have come to life at SUU. Every student who comes to our campus brings their own unique dreams, just like the diverse landscape that surrounds us. Today, we're united by a shared vision that goes beyond time and embodies what it means to be a T-Bird.

We're excited to introduce our end-of-year campaign, "Giving Wings to T-Bird Dreams." This theme represents our commitment to helping our students achieve their goals while celebrating the incredible spirit of our alumni. At its core, this campaign is an invitation to reconnect with the subjects that once fueled your passion and to come together to support the dreams of the next generation.

Embracing the Power of Giving:

SUU is more than just a school. It's a community of dreamers and achievers who share a strong connection. Our alumni have not only excelled in their respective fields but have also carried a part of SUU with them throughout their lives. It's with this deep sense of belonging that we invite you to give back – to play a role in the ongoing transformation of our academic programs.

Supporting Your Alma Mater:

"Giving Wings to T-Bird Dreams" is more than just a campaign. It's a chance to make a lasting impact on the academic fields that influenced your journey. Whether you studied the arts, sciences, business, engineering, or something else, your contribution will directly benefit current and future students. Through targeted support, we'll strengthen resources, improve facilities, and create scholarships to make education more accessible.

A Commitment to the Future:

In our ever-changing world, the importance of higher education and specialized training is clearer than ever. By supporting your academic area, you become part of a legacy that changes lives, promotes innovation, and uplifts communities. Your generosity is an investment in the future leaders, thinkers, and creators who will shape our world for the better.

We welcome all support, whether it's directed towards a fund that helps the community as a whole, an area of study that you're passionate about, or a family scholarship you'd like to carry on as part of your legacy. Please take the time to explore our areas of giving.  Every gift makes a difference, and every T-Bird's dreams deserve to take flight.

Join Us on this Journey:

We encourage you to spark change, kindle hope, and lead the way for our future T-Birds. Your support's influence knows no bounds, and together, we'll create a magnificent flight of dreams. Thank you for being an integral part of SUU's story. We're excited to go on this journey together with "Giving Wings to T-Bird Dreams."

Be an Advocate!
