We are Western

We are Western. We are the faculty, the staff, the administrators that make Western the great institution it is for our students. Regardless of the job we do, students ultimately benefit from our effort.

This year’s Faculty and Staff campaign is part of the current $60 million capital campaign to ensure student success. So far, a little over $50 million has been raised. Your participation is essential to the success of this campaign, and to the success of Western and our students.

Your participation is equally as important as the amount you choose to give. Every gift makes a difference, and your support has never been more important than right now.


Your gift may be directed to any area you choose and will be transformational for our students and our campus. Payroll deduction is the simplest way. A suggested amount of $10 per paycheck (an amount you are not likely to miss) means $120 or $240 a year to support students. If you prefer a one-time gift, you can make one right now for immediate impact.

This year, join us in making the statement We are Western with your participation. Show your purple pride – faculty & staff campaign participation rates make a powerful statement to current and potential students and faculty, alumni, and outside funding agencies. We are Western and we care enough to support the institution and the students that make our jobs possible.
