USD is currently in the final stage of a successful $250 million comprehensive campaign. Having surpassed its goal with 14 months remaining, the university is on track to raise approximately $308 million, which would be the largest fundraising campaign in state history. The campaign has provided funding for improvements across campus including construction of the Sanford Coyote Sports Center; academic space for kinesiology, physical therapy and occupational therapy; and the Lillibridge Track complex.
The incoming president will have the opportunity to plan USD’s next campaign, which will provide funding for a new School of Health Sciences building, student housing, academic programs and scholarships, among other priorities.
As the chief fundraiser and revenue generator, the president will actively engage current and prospective donors and alumni in philanthropic activities while identifying new and creative revenue streams through public/private partnerships, government grants and other strategies that contribute to the institution’s long-term financial success and sustainability.
