In turn our more than 22,000 graduates have gone on to use their intelligence and strength in their careers, families, and communities to make the world a better place.
But sustaining excellence has never been more complicated. Higher education is competitive – and costly. That means attracting and retaining top faculty and staff, maintaining a beautiful campus that fosters student learning, and paying for college will continue to challenge even the very best colleges and families.
Our new brand, Meredith College | Going Strong, has captured the history and spirit of Meredith. And our strategic plan, Meredith Forever, has given us the blueprint for making the College even stronger.
Now, through Beyond Strong: The Campaign for Meredith, we must raise the funds to make that plan a reality.
We're confident that we’ll succeed, thanks to the support of friends like you. People who believe in the transformative power of a strong education. Who know that investing in Meredith is an investment in their own communities. Who believe that a strong education is the best way to ensure we have the effective, ethical leaders we need to meet the inevitable challenges of the future.
There are any number of ways you can support Meredith. Make a gift that addresses the most pressing needs of the College. Select another, more specific, way to make an immediate impact on the College. Or make a long-term, endowed gift. If you're not sure how you want to help, contact us. We're happy to meet with you to discuss which option makes the most sense for you and your family.
Like the strategic plan, these six priorities were developed in collaboration with those who know – and love – Meredith best. Each is essential to making the College even stronger in order to meet the needs of our students, our campus, and the larger community.
Educational Excellence – enhancing high-caliber academic and development experiences
Enrollment – supporting scholarships, both recruiting and completion scholarships, that provide assistance with tuition and fees for new and returning students
Financial Strength – building the endowment funds that will sustain Meredith in perpetuity
Facilities & Technology – preserving and enhancing the quality of our buildings and technology
Marketing and Visibility – expanding our reach into new markets
Quality of Life – looking after the health and well-being of our community, both the Meredith community itself and the larger world beyond the College
