Beyond Strong

For 126 years, Meredith has made a profound impact on the lives of our students.

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.

Jena Muntz Gallagher

First STEM Scholarship Endowment Established

The personal computer, Apple, and DOS were all the latest thing in 1981 when Jena Muntz Gallagher, ʼ85, stepped onto Meredith College’s campus. As a mathematics major with a concentration in computer science, Gallagher knew that the major would provide her excellent job opportunities and a stellar education.

Meredith College Celebrates Strong Financial Position

As 2017 comes to a close, Meredith College is celebrating its financial strength. From a record number of million dollar gifts to an upgraded bond rating, there is much evidence that Meredith is Going Strong. Beyond Strong, the Campaign for Meredith, has raised nearly $70 million toward its $75 million goal. More than $4 million has been raised during this fiscal year. The Beyond Strong campaign surpassed the total raised in Meredith’s last campaign by $13 million just four years into the campaign.

Dr Jo Allen

From the President: “Ask and you will receive.”

As alumnae, faculty, staff, trustees, and other friends of the College, you consistently ask me what the College needs and then step forward with your gifts, your energy, your connections, passion, and commitment.
