MSU kicks off public phase of Comprehensive Campaign

Nov. 14, 2012 — Morehead State University has officially kicked off the public phase of its first-ever Comprehensive Campaign.

The announcement was made by President Wayne D. Andrews during the 2012 Homecoming Banquet.

“With the approval of the Board of Regents and the MSU Foundation, I’m pleased to announce that Morehead State University has established a $25 million goal for this campaign. This is aggressive and exceeds our consultant’s recommendation by several million dollars, but we are confident of success. This money will be used to fund initiatives that are outside the scope of the state and tuition funded budget, but are imperative to our ability to move forward toward becoming the best public regional university in the south.”

The “Much More Opportunity: The Campaign for Morehead State University” will ensure MSU’s continued success in delivering high-quality education and building pathways for outreach, research and excellence in East Kentucky and beyond.

“This is by far the largest fundraising effort in our history and our first-ever Campaign,” the president said. “The current economic climate has led us to a place where now, more than ever, donor generosity will be necessary to help us fulfill our mission of educating young people and serving this region.”

Dr. Andrews stated that the quiet phase of the campaign began in 2007 when MSU secured the funding for the acquisition of Eagle Trace Golf Course. He explained how this fundraising initiative aligned with one of the four initiatives of the campaign, Athletic and Recreational Enhancements. The other campaign initiatives include: Growing our Annual Fund, Arts and Community Outreach, and Advancing Academic Excellence.

Currently, the MSU Foundation administers nearly 250 scholarships, providing more than $600,000 annually in privately funded student aid. Through “The Much More Opportunity Campaign,” many of these funds will grow and many new scholarships will be created.
