A Message From More Light! Leadership

Dear Alumni and Friends of Lawrence,

The More Light! campaign has moved Lawrence forward in both tangible and intangible ways. It is difficult for today’s Lawrence student to recall a campus before the Warch Campus Center, an expanded Björklunden lodge, Riverwalk and Hurvis Crossing. More Light! gifts to our endowment have bolstered the university’s ability to provide necessary scholarships to the more than 90 percent of our students who are dependent on some level of financial assistance. Endowment gifts have created professorships in the sciences and conservatory, increased the total number of faculty at Lawrence and the competitiveness of their salaries. Gifts to the Lawrence Fund have supported new initiatives such as the Lawrence Fellows in numerous disciplines and Posse Scholars, enhancing the fabric of our community and broadening the learning opportunities offered at our university. Awards from private family foundations have enabled Lawrence to strengthen its curriculum, building Senior Experience campus-wide; focused Dance Studies; and Cinema, Media and Cultural Studies in the Humanities.

There can be no question that the unwavering generosity and determination of our alumni, friends and supporters have transformed this institution. The More Light! campaign will have an enduring legacy that will positively impact the educations of countless Lawrentians far beyond our lifetimes. On behalf of the More Light! campaign steering committee and the Lawrence community, thank you for your support of the campaign and the college.
