Higher education is confronted with greater challenges and steeper demands than at any other time in the history of our country. The facts are clear and urgent: We, as an institution, are committed to increasing our endowment to attract, retain, and reward excellent faculty and staff while offering a high-quality education to a diverse and talented student population.

The quality of Cazenovia's academic experience depends on the teaching, scholarly, and creative activities of our faculty. To remain current in their individual disciplines, our faculty must interact with their peers and broaden their knowledge through research, artistic expression, and professional presentations. The Campaign will seek investment in this work, which, in turn, will create a richer curriculum and a broader academic experience. In addition, investment in endowed program funds will provide benefits that pervade our academic program, including our First Year Program, All-College Honors Program and our increasing emphasis on international studies.
